SUMMER CAMP

SUMMER CAMP IN SHANGHAI

FULL TIME CAMP

This program is ideal for parents who want to give their children a head start in learning Mandarin and get to know China! They will be immersed not only in the Chinese language, but as much as so in its culture. Apart from that there will be plenty of time to socialize with the other kids and to go on interesting and fun excursion. We specialize in providing a safe, fun, motivating and highly educational environment for all kids.

At our camp your kids learn faster and with more fun. That is because we consider learning Mandarin as an adventurous journey and we make sure the kids will enjoy the ride! We teach them our innovative Slow Motion Technique. A technique highly popular with our students as it teaches you Mandarin with just one rule instead of dozens and which kid wouldn’t love that?

CULTURAL ACTIVITIES & EXCURSIONS

Time to get to know China! How to practice Chinese painting and calligraphy and what is so special about it? Surely everybody has heard of martial arts like Tai Chi, so now try it yourselves! The city of Shanghai and its surrounding famous Water Towns will leave our students speechless. Experience Shanghai’s amazing skyline at the famous Bund, the Pearl Tower, wander through the historical Tianzifang with its Shikumen and last but not least have a refreshing drink in one of Shanghai’s famous Sky bars!
