4. Is the course focused on the HSK exam?
The course is focused on the practical use of Mandarin and a fun cultural experience. We use HSK levels as one of the ways to differentiate groups in different Chinese levels.

We’ll provide materials in various forms (PDF, audio and video) for the students to preview and review the lessons. There will also be after-class tasks and plenty of supplementary content.

Modern China at its best

Shenzhen, a vibrant economic hub in South China just across the border from Hong Kong, is home to more than 10 million people. It’s not only the city of gleaming skyscrapers a center of commerce, but also a popular tourist destination for both domestic and international travelers. With an international airport as well as a bustling ferry terminal providing service to Hong Kong and Macau, Shenzhen offers a menu of gastronomic, theme-park, entertainment, and retail adventures for all tastes.

Why Choose Shenzhen for A Winter Camp

Shenzhen’s tropical climate makes it the perfect destination for a winter camp. With continually warm weather, students can escape the harsh winters of their home countries and enjoy a warm break away. But this isn’t a put-your-feet-up kind of break; in fact, the cities booming electronics industry has turned Shenzhen from a small fishing village into a bustling centre of commerce in just 35 years. So, if you’re a bit of a tech-guru or interested in gaming and the latest phones and laptops, then Shenzhen really is the place to be! This growth has caused many people to migrate to Shenzhen and there is now an amazing selection of food from across China all in one city. Staying in Shenzhen, students will have the opportunity to taste everything China has to offer. What’s more, if Hong Kong is on the agenda, there are fantastic transport links between the two cities, with a new high-speed train service taking you from Futian District to central Hong Kong in just 15 minutes.
