Did you know that Mandarin Chinese originated in Beijing? If you want to learn Chinese in a location where you’ll hear the most common forms of Chinese both in the classroom and outside, then Beijing is the ideal choice! Beijing, China’s capital city (sometimes called ‘Peking’) is also the place to go if you want to experience both the modern and ancient flavours of the country. Whether you want to experience the nightlife of modern China, or visit the Forbidden City or the Temple of Heaven, you can do it all in Beijing!
We have two Chinese schools in Beijing, each offering high quality courses. Our Beijing (Haidian) school is in the Haidian District, popular with students and intellectuals. Our Beijing (Chaoyang) school is in the central Chaoyang district, where the Olympic Park for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games is located!
Our Beijing (Haidian) school is located in the Haidian District, close to the city’s universities and very popular with young people and intellectuals.

One of the quickest ways to improve your fluency and experience Chinese life during your Chinese course in Beijing is to stay with one of our carefully-selected host families. This way, you’ll have the opportunity to practise the Chinese you’ll have learnt in class, and try some delicious home cooked Chinese food at the same time! You’ll naturally have your own bedroom, but will share the bathroom and other facilities with the family. Our host families offer half board (two meals/day), giving you plenty of opportunities to practise Chinese over the dinner table!
If you prefer, you can stay in our comfortable student residence, or one of our student apartments. You’ll have a private bathroom in both these options. If you’re staying in our student residence and you’d like Internet access in your room, please do ask us – we can arrange this for you for an extra charge.
Our school arranges at least one cultural activity per week, to help you get the most from your stay whilst you learn Chinese in Beijing. Activities include Chinese cookery and excursions to locations such as the Great Wall of China and the Summer Palace.
