10 Jul Small group in GAC GAC's small group program activities are usually composed in small classes with a maximum of 5 students accompanied with a professor. We look for diversity in the classrooms, a multi-cultural classroom with different backgroounds, nationalities and cultures. According to one of GAC’s teacher: “We have a department of support teachers who assess the students when they arrive. We also feel that they will learn Mandarin better, if they are immersed in the language. I have British, Spanish, Slovakian and Russian students in my classroooms (I'm sure to have probably missed some!). All these diversities lead to great topics and discussions based on tolerance and respect". Beijing and Shanghai GAC offices and classrooms are ready for all international Mandarin learners.
