2017 Participants’ Comments:

  • * Great overall experience. Extremely pleased that I attended.
    * This is an amazing way to learn and get a better understanding of the Chinese culture.
  • * Had lots of fun; met a lot of new friends; my Chinese improved a ton. Very satisfied overall.
    * It was a great experience. It was fun to go exploring around Shanghai with our language buddies. I had a great time and would highly recommend it.
    * I would do this again! The learning opportunities, places, friends, etc – all very worth while. I consider this one of my top life experiences.
    * This trip was a lot of fun. The classes were helpful and very interesting. I learned a lot about Shanghai by travelling around and talking to many different people.
    * I landed in Shanghai and I felt immediately involved and immersed in the program. The organization and welcoming to the school was exceptional, and the events and classes were run flawlessly. 
    * My experience couldn’t have been better. I made many new friends from Shanghai and Vancouver. The program is rich with places to see and things to learn. I love the language buddies and teachers. And it’s fun to go to the student cafeteria to order from the dumpling guy and the noodle lady. I learned a lot in this program.
    *Incredibly rewarding intellectually, experientially, and personally. Not only did I improve my Mandarin, I was also able to both revisit and create new friendships with classmates and group members alike. I will be back next year, making it a third time.

Wonderful memories...
