Chinese Immersion Program – Detailed Info
The Chinese immersion program combines a Chinese language course in Beijing with studying in a complete immersion environment in China’s old summer capital, Chengde.
Chengde in the Sun – A great place to enjoy Chinese Immersion
Living completely immersed in Chengde is a great way to experience the real China and improve your Mandarin fast. However, for someone who is not familiar with China yet, this can be a bit too much at the beginning.
Therefore you will first settle into China at our language school in Beijing where we have a fun international community of students studying abroad. There are plenty of foreigners around and even some local Chinese can speak English. You can choose to study in a small group or individually, live in a homestay, shared or serviced apartment or your own accommodation.
During this time, you will improve your Mandarin, learn how China and its society work and get ready to take the next big step into a real immersion environment.
First we will get you ready for the real China with the pre-Chengde meeting.
After this, you will move to Chengde where you will not speak a word of English anymore and be speaking, dreaming and living Mandarin 24/7. Accommodation options here are homestay or shared apartments and your friends will exclusively be local Chinese.
Chinese Immersion Program – Standard
Study 20 hours a week of small group in Beijing, followed by 20 hours of 1 on 1 in Chengde.
If you studied Mandarin previously you can start the program on any Monday, but if you are a complete beginner you should start on one of our beginner group starting dates. The program can be taken for as long as you want from four weeks to 12 months.
Chinese Immersion Program Intensive
The fastest way to learn Mandarin there is.
You will study 20 hours of small group and 10 hours of individual Chinese classes in Beijing, followed by 30 hours of 1 on 1 in Chengde.
Like the Chinese Immersion Standard Program you can start on any Monday if you already know some Mandarin, but can only start on a complete beginner date in Beijing if you don’t. The program can be taken for as long as you want from four weeks to 12 months.
Chinese Immersion Program – Individual
Your Mandarin classes will be tailored just for you and you will study 20 hours of individual classes both in Beijing and Chengde.
You can start the program on any Monday, independently of your level and can study it for a language holiday of only four weeks or up to complete fluency for 12 months.
