Learn (Mandarin) Chinese in China

This republic is inevitably a people's republic, if you consider that more than out of five people on the planet is Chinese. It is colossal too, with a surface area of more than ten million square kilometres.No wonder you can easily get lost among its maze of valleys, as well as of monuments to visit (the Great Wall is just the visible part of an enormous heritage) and the legacy of its successive dynasties. In China, you can find your idea of paradise.

Discover Beijing, the Ming dynasty’s monumental capital, where the hutong – the old alleys – overflow with history. The Forbidden City, which in the past was reserved to the imperial family only, and Mao Zedong’s Mausoleum, are some of the major attractions. The past combines with the present in Beijing as well as in Shanghai, one of the most populated cities in the world. Thanks to its ideal location, Shanghai is nowadays a modern city where you can satisfy every shopping or nightlife interest. Xi’an and Qingdao are also worth a visit: the former for its impressive terracotta army, the latter for its famous beer.

China, the world’s third largest country, offers a wide range of excursion possibilities. In addition to an extended railway network, there are long distance bus services throughout its provinces. In the countryside, it is easy to meet the inhabitants who can be very welcoming. In the cities, the Chinese people’s traditional way of life is being gradually combined with an excessive taste for Western influences. As for gastronomy, which has long been one of China’s principal exports, you will discover how rich and subtle it really is, compared to what you might taste in a Chinese restaurant in Paris, Moscow or New York.
