Take a Chinese course in Qingdao, and find out why this picturesque coastal city is such a favourite with the Chinese themselves! Located on the southern tip of the Shandong Peninsula, Qingdao is a great location year round, with warm, bright summers and clear, cool winters.
Our students love Qingdao for its wide beaches, clear blue waters and unhurried pace of life. In the heat of the summer, there’s nothing like strolling along the city’s beautiful promenades, cooled by sea breezes. Qingdao also has a lively cultural life, including an International Beer Festival, a celebration of the city’s famous Tsingtao Beer.
Don’t forget, our school’s optional activities program makes it really easy to explore the Shandong region during your course. From an evening meal in the home of a local farmer, to an excursion to the Great Wall, our activities will help you to achieve a better understanding of Chinese culture as you learn Chinese at our school!
