I did Sino Language during summer 2015, and can say that I truly changed from the experience. I was lucky enough to participate in the teaching program, where I, along with a group of 12 other students, taught English in Beijing for 9 days. I really learned how to lead by example, and how to interact and have fun with kids even though we came from completely different cultures and backgrounds. I highly reccomend the experience if you're looking to improve your Chinese or just want to see a different side of leadership!

Thank you!

Hi Anna, Our son is back home and full of souvenirs from China and the summer leadership camp in Beijing. We wanted to thank you for all the pre-departure information, coordination and Gao and the local camp councelors for all the onsite coordination Damien for his ESL expertise. He learned a lot not only teaching English but about the Chinese culture (painting, diabolo), sightseeing, food, Chinese language etc. all with specialists in the field. It was a super well organized trip and we appreciated the professionalism for all activities. Thanks again for this lifetime experience that he gained thanks to your organization and your expertise. We will make sure to recommend it to other friends and school. Best regards, Stephanie R.

I participated in the Volunteer program this past summer and I wanted to tell you what a rewarding experience I had. The kids I taught really connected to us and the trip to Mongolia was definitely an eye opener. I would really like to return Sino camp next year as a counselor to younger kids and give back =]

Thank you very much for taking such good care of my daughter Cristina while visiting China. She had a wonderful experience and learned a lot, not only did she improve her Chinese language skills and visited incredible places, but she created new friendships with children from other parts of the world. Your Camp is better than I expected and I will be sure to recommend it to my friends!
