    Advance your Mandarin in the fast-paced metropolis of Shanghai.

    Take your Mandarin to new heights with four weeks of language immersion in China’s largest city, Shanghai. After language classes, hit the city’s trendy and ancient streets to practice your language skills with locals. 

    Take a stroll along the Huangpu River, where you can admire the diverse architectural styles that define Shanghai's skyline. Wander among traditional Chinese temples, taste food from family-owned restaurants, and meet local teens. Enjoy traditional dance, sports, and calligraphy workshops and Chinese trivia nights. 

    Living with a host family, you’ll grow your Mandarin language and cultural knowledge even further as you prepare and share Chinese meals. On excursions, explore the water village of Zhujiajiao and travel to the ancient city Hangzhou. Along with forging new friendships, you’ll rapidly improve your Mandarin skills in an authentic setting, full of stunning scenery, historical sites, and multicultural influences.
