Internship in China
Spend your winter taking your Chinese language skills to the next level by studying Mandarin at one of China’s top universities.

The small group Chinese language program is perfect for individuals who prefer smaller classes, groups wanting a personalized experience or even families. The program is flexible, and you will start speaking Mandarin in a few weeks.

Our program packages include social and cultural outings so that you are immersed in the Chinese environment, fast-tracking your knowledge and understanding of the Chinese language.

Others may find that they need even more flexibility with when they can learn, like business executives, busy individuals or Interns.
