The Chinese language course is the most important component of our summer camp. The classes are held in small groups to ensure every student gets full attention from teacher and has ample time for practice. The carefully designed curriculum emphasizes conversation and communication, so that students may take full advantage of their surroundings and apply what they’re learning by speaking with friends during the rest of the day.
The International Summer Camp in Shanghai is an ideal balance between study, leisure and travel.
All Chinese levels from total beginners to advanced are accepted.
The full residential program embodies the essence of Mandarin China Summer Camp philosophy: by studying, living and practicing languages in a total Chinese immersion environment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, students will not only improve Chinese rapidly, but also learn interpersonal skills and make friends to last a lifetime. Students will homestay with Chinese families or live in shared students apartments. Both airport pick-up and drop-off offered. All meals provided.
After morning language classes let out for the day, the afternoons are packed with a variety of activities, all designed be both age-appropriate and fun! We divide the summer camp afternoon activity program into four categories: city exploration, cultural workshops, sports and recreation. By participating in so many different types of activities, students never stop having fun!
Every weekend students will explore a different city or interesting attraction near Shanghai with our camp counselors.
