Intensive course in Beijing

Studying Chinese in Beijing was wonderful!!! I liked it very much, especially the people that I met at the Chinese language school in Beijing. At all times the teachers, employees and students were kind, friendly and willing to help me in my studies. My class was also amazing. Dominic from Australia , Serge from Congo, Marie-Christine from France and, of course, our teacher Zhang Ye gave me memorable moments and made my Intensive Course studies less difficult. I will miss everyone.  Q: What do you find most interesting about Beijing?
A: Beijing is a big city! There are so many people here. I visited some beautiful places like Houhai, Beihai Park , as well as interesting places like Temple of Heaven , Qianmen and The Great Wall.

Q: What advice/tips would you give to others who plan to come and study in China?
A: I think that the best way to come and study here is to lodge with a host family. My host family was very nice. All the time they worried about me and asked me what I would like to eat, where I would like to go, or if I needed any help with my studies. It was a big opportunity to practice what I had learnt in the classroom.
If you plan to learn Chinese or any other language or thing perseverance is the key – don’t give up! There are so many ways to do the same thing. So, if you are unable to take one path, try another. Usually simple actions are enough to fix many problems, just say hello to everyone for example. In Chinese it is very simple: Ni hao! But it means so much: “Hello, are you ok! Are you happy today?”.
