* The teachers were amazing. I found that having them speak in Mandarin for the entire class was helpful in force-understanding. I feel like because they always spoke in Mandarin, I can now understand more Chinese than if they had spoken in English.
*Had lots of good memories, never a bad one. I felt safe because it was well organized and the language buddies were such a big help. Super fun and I would do it again.
*This program is a great way to ease into the Chinese culture. I loved the language buddies and all the effort they put in, and the teachers were extremely enthusiastic, which made classes fun.
*Coordinators and language buddies put in an incredible amount of work to make this program the best experience possible. Outstanding trip with outstanding people. I felt like I was able to experience Shanghai and Chinese culture in the most safe yet varied way possible.
