There are many school organized activities, lots of homestay interaction, and lots of homestay interaction. We like that students live in a private room with laundry service, with a choice of homestay or apartment. There is also a diverse mix of students and academic credit is available. What don’t we like? Usually, students have a 20-40 minute commute to school. Additional programs offered at this school include Chinese for Specific Purposes, Chinese and Kung Fu, Chinese and Painting, and Chinese and Calligraphy.
