Study Tours

"I highly commend the CI for putting together such an action-packed intensive program, perfect for those who want to travel but have long-term work commitments they must attend to." - 2013 study tour participant
"The program was a great opportunity to improve my mandarin skills and understand more of China. The tours gave a wonderful overview and introduction to some of the key sights and historical events in China. The meals introduced me to a range of new dishes and understanding of the various regional cuisines of the country. I enjoyed meeting and interacting with local Chinese people and engaging with them in conversation and discussions and learning more about their everyday lives and issues that concern them." - 2013 study tour participant
"I am normally at Mandarin class at the end of a long day and with many other responsibilities on my mind. It was great to be able to start the day with Mandarin classes and to give it my full attention. It was also good to be surrounded by the language throughout the day and with people who have the same passion for leaning Mandarin." - 2013 study tour participant
'The tour was beyond amazing , thoroughly enjoyed.' 2014 Art and Culture Tour Participant

‘We all had a wonderful time, and cannot recommend it enough.  Especially with Xu Lao Shi's contacts in Shanghai, we all agreed,  we felt like a delegation, rather than a study tour.’ 2014 Art and Culture Tour Participant
