Living with a Chinese roommate—in a pairing based on interests and preferences—is one benefit shared by all School in China students, whether in Hangzhou, Kunming, or Beijing. Challenging course work and the Language Pledge round out a highly immersive program for the serious student of Mandarin Chinese.
As China's capital, Beijing is a large and vibrant city particularly marked by rapid economic growth. The city itself has grown tremendously and visitors and residents alike remark at its constant state of change and the contrast between the modern and the ancient. It is also the center of Chinese cultural "action," and--since it is the capital--a place where politics is central.
