Testimonials

My daughter really enjoyed the Camp; meeting the other children and being taught Chinese. We thought your level of contact with us, the parents, at all stages was fantastic. We felt truly informed and up-to-date on everything that was going on. The methodical organization and level of information about what was going on and where the children were at all times, truly allayed any fears we might have had about sending our 15 year old daughter to Beijing. Well done to you all. Maggie had a fabulous experience and is very interested in returning next summer.

Geoff had a wonderful month in China, and had so many great stories, memories and photos to show us. I want to thank you and all the Sino-Language staff, Chinese teachers, and others in China who touched Geoff's life and who made the last weeks of his trip so rewarding. Please let everyone know how appreciative we are.

The kids had a great day today in Forbidden City and Tiannamen Square, thank you for your excellent coordination and guidance. The kids enjoyed the tour guide Tristen so much! As adults we understand that such a trip on a hot day could be grueling, but we had so many breaks and rest stops, and with all the interesting and detailed information we received, the trip turned out to be a relaxing and enjoyable one. All the counselors are great and extremely helpful as well! Thanks so much for all you've done! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My daughter has just learned the hundreds of simplified characters in 5th grade, she knows more than me now and she is very enthusiastic about learning Chinese, I am so proud of her. Her enthusiasm in leaning simplified Chinese was really sparked by Sinolanguage camp. Thanks once again for all that you do :-)

We have had such a wonderful experience with SINO. Lily is going to be a senior in High School next year and we want to send her back to China one last time this summer. She is still being tutored in Mandarin and now the study is primarily in conversational language. I'm hoping that she will continue to improve her language skills because I believe this language will help her in whatever she decides to do in her work.

I have already received an email from Shannon that she is doing fine in Beijing. Only couple hours after her arrival, I can feel she is happy, very comfortable with the environment, and she gets along well with her roommate too. I am very pleased on SLG staff (in both USA & China) provided such a well organized program to these students even at the first day of their arrival. I am sure they will have a wonderful time in China and will bring back a lot of good memory to share with their friends and families. Thank you! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank you so much for your effort in arranging the surprise birthday cake for Shannon. I know it would not be easy especially during their trip to Inner Mongolia. When I called Shannon on July 29, she told me that was the most special birthday ever and the only surprise party she has ever had. It was a complete joy to my daughter. Thank you! Today most of the campers are heading to the airport. I am sure they all have a wonderful time in Beijing and they can't wait to share all the good memory with their families and friends. Thank you again for all of your help and no doubt, SLG programs will be the first choice for me to plan for my kids in next summer.
