Intensive Chinese Language Program's Overview
Our most flexible option to study Chinese in China, you can go to a small Chinese school Shanghai with our classes beginning every Monday of the year for varying levels. Classes run for three hours Monday to Friday. The teachers at our partner school all have years of experience and a passion for teaching. They have all received thorough training in teaching Chinese as a foreign language and are officially certified. our partner school uses simulated everyday situations as the main teaching approach, enabling students to learn quickly and in a relaxed manner that is immediately applicable outside the classroom and abandons the test-oriented teaching mode, putting a greater emphasis on intensive speaking and listening exercises throughout the teaching process. Before you begin class, we will assess your level of spoken and written Chinese and assign you to a class that will match your level. If you only have a few weeks to study abroad in China, or can only get certain dates off work to come out, we will be able to accommodate your schedule.

Our teachers are rotated regularly in order to keep the learning atmosphere fresh. We do this so that our students can fully benefit from the instructors’ varied strengths and teaching style. The course includes four to six hours a day of formal study, with a ratio of 1 instructor to 5-10 foreign students.
Learning Mandarin Chinese, we operate on a well thought-out curriculum to suit both our short term and long-term students, ensuring that all students get the best lessons and support during their time of study. Our lesson plans are carefully organized, bearing in mind the interest, time frames and learning style of our applicants.
Besides the conventional classroom style learning, at Go Abroad China we also value the importance of after class activities as an additional aspect of learning Chinese language and understanding the culture. As such, GAC organizes several out of class activities during the week and city tours over the weekend, helping students better appreciate the Chinese language and culture. Additionally, we also encourage our students to take part in language exchange; we offer a complete assistance service package, from departure to arrival in China, orientation, visa support, accommodation, business and networking outings etc.
