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!
