Learn Chinese in China

Study Mandarin Chinese in China, the most populous country in the world with an ancient and fascinating culture. Framed by breathtaking scenery and with a bustling metropolis, China contains many impressive historical monuments to captivate you, including the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Warriors and various luxurious imperial temples. 

China is a huge country so the climate and landscape are incredibly diverse, from tropical regions in the south to the subarctic north. Outside the modern cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, the countryside is ideal for nature lovers as it boasts tranquil mountain lakes, idyllic islands and huge deserts. In addition, many gastronomic delights await you during your stay: Chinese food may be popular all over the world but the cuisine you will find in your local Chinatown will pale in comparison to the real thing. 

Mandarin has more native speakers than any other language in the world (over 900 million people) and is becoming an increasingly important language in international business. Mandarin is not easy to learn as it is composed of more than ten thousand characters, but it is an interesting and enjoyable language to study. Visiting China is the perfect way to limprove your language skills as you will progress rapidly by using your Mandarin all day every day.

In China the power plugs and sockets are of type A, C and I. The standard voltage is 220 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. You can use your electric appliances in China, if the standard voltage in your country is in between 220 - 240 V (as is in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa). Manufacturers take these small deviations into account. If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100 V - 127 V (as is in the US, Canada and most South American countries), you need a voltage converter in China.
