[off-topic] Intensive 2 weeks course in Beijing Mid Oct query

WanLi   September 26th, 2010 3:55p.m.

I am visiting Beijing with Family around the 3rd week of Oct. for 2 weeks. does any body know a good intensive immersion course i can make use of while i am there? one suggestion was the DaShan school(also known as Daesan Education). BLCU and other universities do not offer such short programs on short notice

Create one for yourself based on Chinesepod! Two weeks is most definitely too short and you will gain nothing from drill classes (like most of them are) in such a short period of time.

Pick a topic and study all the lessons you think would be related to that topic. Most preferably are ones that are everyday language.

Make it a commitment to study maybe 3 lessons a day (that is the equivalent of how much we do in immersion programs, in my opinion) while you are there and practice with Chinese friends if you have some!

Do some language exchange with your Chinese friends, they will appreciate it and so will you.
