DO I NEED TO SPEAK ENGLISH?
No, it is not necessary. From the very start, the classes are run in Chinese in order to quickly absorb the language. At the beginning, basic words will be translated to English, but these are very simple words, so you can definitely handle it. On the other hand, you will be encouraged to communicate more in Chinese and your progress will be faster!
WILL I RECEIVE A CERTIFICATE?
Of course. After successfully completing your summer course, you will receive a certificate of completion. It would be a great opportunity for you to check out the environment for your further studies which could be completed with HSK certificate! Check out also out long term courses!

WILL ANY TRIPS BE ORGANIZED?
Of course! Trips to the famous Great Wall of China or Forbidden city, or to see traditional Chinese art performances or tea ceremonies and much more are waiting for you. No boundaries are set and you will definitely meet other classmates wanting to explore more areas in China.
