Nothing is as immersive, thrilling and educational as learning Mandarin in China, especially in the city of Dali in Yunnan province, a culturally rich and naturally beautiful part of the Chinese landscape.
Situated in the south-west region of the country, the area is known for its landmarks such as the Cang (Tsang) Shan Mountain, Er Hai Lake and the Ancient City (where you will be located), all places that will enchant and capture your imagination.
And it is here that you will be residing as you begin your one-on-one Mandarin language lessons, guided and instructed by an experienced teacher, surrounded by helpful and friendly Mandarin native speakers, ancient Chinese history, traditional food and social settings to practise your new language skills in.
And a nice bonus is that Dali is never cold! With temperatures ranging from 10-20 degrees all the time and a lot of bright sunshine, it is a comfortable and pleasing climate to live and learn in.
This Mandarin language course offers you the chance to escape to the Far East and learn Mandarin to improve your social skills or take your profession to the next level with the overseas market; whatever your reasons for learning Mandarin, there is nothing like immersing yourself into a foreign culture to bring motivation and excitement to your studies.
