Learning Chinese in Beijing Go Abroad China
This review was found useful by 2 users 4
by Oliver, United Kingdom
Course details: 4 weeks, 20 hours/week, homestay, July 2016
I was only in Beijing for just a month and was learning Chinese during that time in China. Going Abroad is very expensive, my parents were also very deeply involved since when I applied I was actually still in high school back in The States.

Why did I end up with Go Abroad China?
A bunch of other programs I read about were expensive but I really insisted on going to China, so I was left with taking one of the cheapest programs I researched.

It wasn't actually too bad, I was at a beginner level 2 when I went to China and was placed into a language school in Beijing. Some times I felt like my classmates definitely learned more than me, other times I was okay, it wasn't too hard...but at least I was able to pick up some Chinese jokes here and there.
- organizing a school for me
- one of the staff went with me to the Greatwall one saturday
- helping me get housing
- prices for going abroad can get expensive

Great time in Shanghai Go Abroad China

by Oliver, United Kingdom
Course details: 8 weeks, 20 hours/week, shared flat, July 2015
I went to Shanghai a year ago and enrolled at the Jiaotong University there for 2 months Chinese summer course. I was a beginner in Chinese when I went to Shanghai, in my class there were around 22 students, around the same level as I was, all foreigners.
In class, we started with the very basics; the simplest vocabulary and how to form a basic sentence. Of course some people learned faster than others. For me there were times when I got confused, some other times I had great fun in class. We had one general language teacher and another one who trained us on listening.
I applied through Go Abroad China, whom I found when I was going through the internet and doing some research. I am satisfied with their service; when I got to Shanghai I was picked up from the airport to go to my new rented flat, got a little orientation about where to catch the metro or the bus. I had two other Chinese guys for flatmates, everyone had a bedroom but we shared the common areas. Most of the application and communication was by email, but I was invited for a skype video call once or twice I think.
When I left Shanghai I did notice that I had improved a lot. I could barely speak Chinese when I left for China. I can only manage small basic conversations but I am still continuing with the lessons, although not as frequently as when I was in Shanghai.
the teaching was good specifically for us as beginners
