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.
