Why Learn Chinese Abroad?
For most foreigners, Chinese is totally different from their mother tongue. Learning Chinese challenges the student to step beyond his or her comfort zone and dare to learn a little something about themselves. Studies show that cultural immersion is the most effective way to learn a foreign language as student is exposed to it all the time. Moreover, as a student gains more proficiency in the language, he/she also has an edge in applying jobs in China or jobs that focus on the Chinese market overseas.

Why Choose Us?
Unlike other language programs offered by other institutions/universities, our program includes internship opportunities particularly in the hospitality industry –hotels and cruise liners. From the latest tourism statistics, it clearly shows that the cruise industry is the most promising industry in the Chinese leisure market, therefore, the demand for Mandarin speakers is exponentially growing year by year. Every cruise liner wants a diversified pool of crew members so foreigners who speak Mandarin have great advantage over their peers back home.
