Beijing Language and Culture University is one of MYRIAD language schools in Beijing. However, it is among the most reputable. From my experience, BLCU's strong reputation seems well-deserved. That being said, there may be less costly ways to learn Mandarin. A classmate of mine mentioned the availablity of student tutors for 10 RMB per hour (about CDN $2). The obvious benefit here, aside from the low cost, is the effectiveness of one-on-one learning. I'd recommend considering tutoring in CONJUNCTION with a language course, such as at BLCU. Although class sizes may seem unwieldy (15 to 25 students), the classes at BLCU provided a well-structured approach. No regrets.

Course recommendations
The books suck, they don't teach you the chinese you really need in real life. Finding a tutor is easy and I recommend it, you can supplement your curriculum. If you think the classes are too easy it's really hard to skip to a higher class, but it's worth it.

Personal recommendation
It is a very good university the programmes are very serious and the prepration pretty good. The thing westeners would not like is the lack of freedom and of creativity. This university is good to learn the language, but it is necessary to have a life outside campus in order to get to know the environment and local people better.

If you want to learn chinese efficiently and want to mingle with local people, don't go to this university. I recommend this University for short term students and people who like it clean and comfortable.
