Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Don't bring cash with you. Use your ATM card to draw money out in yuan. No need for cash. If you encounter any problems, East-West Connection will always be right there to help you even if it is after hours. They are simply amazing!

I am a language professor, and am very picky about where I study languages, having studied two other languages prior to studying Chinese. I searched the internet for several months to find the right school. I first saw the East-West Connection, and it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for; however, I thought I should check other schools as well. I spent 1-1/2 months looking at other schools across China and in Beijing, and after that time, I decided the East-West Connection was what I was looking for. If you want a small class with no more than 6 students and are serious about studying Chinese, then choose East-West Connection. You won't be sorry!!! They are simply the best!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
make a wordlist from the beginning, go with your classmates to the student bars or Sanlitun bar street, eat in the school's restaurant (cheap and good)

Special thanks to Wendy and Sherril who made sure I got to a basic speaking and understanding of the language and had a great time in Beijing after classes!
