As modern China becomes an increasingly important player in the global economy, there has never been a more opportune time to learn Mandarin.
Indeed over 300 Secondary Schools in the UK are already teaching Mandarin, with many more set to follow their lead. Visiting China is ideal for consolidating this learning, perhaps even more so than our European programmes, given China’s diverse culture which is heavily influenced by its rich ancient history.
We’ve put together an exciting itinerary which combines visiting some of the world’s leading cultural attractions, with opportunities to learn and practice this rich language in a local setting.
Like all our Language tours, we arrange your visits for you and your national and local guides accompany you to every venue and are with you throughout your stay. We also provide educational structure through our worksheets which will engage and focus your students in every environment.
Guides and Chinese lessons
You will have two types of guide during your visit. One will be a national guide who will accompany you from the beginning to the end of your visit to China. In each city they will be joined by English speaking local guides, who will provide the group with information in Chinese as much as is appropriate for your group.
All Chinese lessons included in your tour will be led by professional teachers. We will work with you to tailor the lessons to the ability of your students, from complete beginners upwards.
Our programme of evening entertainments aims to expose your students to a diversity of Chinese culture, including its evocative street culture, high culture and of course, Chinese cuisine. We also aim to give your students the opportunity to meet and mix with peers from a local Chinese school. Whilst we will encourage students to speak and listen in Chinese, help will always be on hand.
