Omeida Chinese Academy and BRIC Language Systems have teamed up to provide you with a combined Chinese language and cultural program like no other; you can experience life in China’s most exhilarating city, Shanghai, then relax in the scenic countryside of Yangshuo. Tours feature intensive Mandarin Chinese language courses, exciting cultural experiences, travel to some of the area’s most famous attractions, meals and accommodation! Learning Mandarin Chinese has never been more fun or exciting!
Students will take part in our intensive Mandarin Chinese courses, with an opportunity to take online classes prior to leaving home and then face-to-face lessons upon arrival in China.
Optional Mandarin Chinese online classes will commence during the week immediately prior to landing in China. This allows students to form a solid base of Mandarin skills and feel more comfortable to “hit the ground running.”
The second part of the Mandarin lessons will take place in China, first in Shanghai then in Yangshuo. Students will leave China with strong knowledge of the Chinese language and culture.
