“My language abilities have skyrocketed thanks to the Academy. While my vocabulary is far from perfect and I sometimes make grammatical errors (both problems are just a matter of practice and persistence), but I’m amazed at how much I learned so quickly. Although I’ve only been studying my language for three months, I have found myself comfortably conversing with people who have been speaking Chinese for upwards of four or five years with an occasional question when a high-level vocabulary term is used. Overall, I’m very pleased with the results, and I enjoyed my stay.”

“I enjoy leaving campus and seeing life in China. It was a nice break from the classroom and let me see more of the city and put my language into use.”

“I really enjoyed the classes because they allowed us to explore a different way of life. Even siesta was a new experience for me.”
