Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Try to speak Chinese most of the time you can, speaking English with other students doesn't help much!
Other comments: Some of the teachers are very efficient and do the best they can to help. If they had a library..., it would really helps the students!
The very flexible schedule. They keep the school open the whole year. This school program suits better business men and University students.

Other comments: i liked having the two teachers, who were both excellent but obviously taught and explained things in a different way that made it easier for me to pick up chinese.
It had a nice and friendly atmosphere and the teachers were very sweet.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Buy the six-ticket deal to the residences of Beijings famous personages - a facinating insight into the contemporary representation of China's modern history.
Other comments: I had a lot of fun, enjoyed the lessons and the ma jiang, and appreciated the interest in the other things I was in Beijing to do. It's hard being away from your family but since I felt that I slotted into another one it was made more bearable.
Friendly teachers and helpful staff.
