Well, I am really glad that I came across this message board on the net.

Anyway, I also want to chime in:

I will also likely attend BLCU classes. Most likely I will take classes for 3 months, though I would prefer to attend a whole semester. It is still up on air because I will do an intership and it really depends when classes take place. I found out that classes are in the morning but I did not get any specific schedule. Has anybody an idea when classes start and end?

Ideally, I would attend classes in the morning and after lunch break I would be working.

Is there anybody else from Austria (ideally Vienna :D) or somebody who takes Elementary Level B?

Hi everyone,

Nice to know that so many of you are going to BLCU this March.

I will arrive on March 3. anyone does the same?

I think I need some other friends to get a room to share or something (I have not had any experience yet)

I'm a little nervous that I would be lost or something :oops:

however, please contact me, we would do good company :D

See you guys,

Anh Nguyen / female/ 23.

4hours a day might seem too much free time but trust me, there are too many things you can do during the afternoon. You can study, play sports, go to the gym, go around Beijing, go sightseeing, hang out with friends, rest, etc. You won't run out of things to do. If you ask me, 4hours a day is just right.

Something I observed: Students in the intensive course (6hrs/day) attend classes more diligently. Those in the regular course cut classes more. Classes in the intensive course also tend to be closer.

BLCU is a great place to learn. For the first time students, don't be nervous, you will do just fine.

Is anybody here planning on going to the university gym at BLCU? I have read mixed things about the gym in terms of price. I am also keen on perhaps joining some Tai Chi classes and maybe even some Chinese Calligraphy if I can find it. I just want as many opportunities to practise / immerse myself.

Another point - internet in dorm 17? I have read that it is available and I have been told it is free but I assume this means access is free and you get charged for the download? I am intending to use skype (it's not blocked I hope? My friend told me he saw people using it when he was in Shanghai).

Skype's not blocked by the Great Firewall nor on the BLCU network, at least a few months ago. I'm not sure about the details of dorm 17 internet access, though.

Internet is not free inside dorm rooms but the 2 establishments inside dorm 17 offer free Wifi.

Inside the rooms you can choose between CERNET or China Unicom (DSL). CERNET cannot be shared by 2 people but Unicom can, with the use of a router. Speed is roughly the same (2mbps max).

China Unicom Unlimited 2mbps 1month validity = 120RMB (Modem Deposit=100RMB). 1mbps is 80RMB.

Mr. Sunburn

Hi all,

got a room in our flat to rent, available immediately, we're over the road from BLCU (from the East gate its about 5-6mins walk) all amenities are close by. I'm at BLCU, English, love a laugh, my Mrs is starting work for Hainan Airlines next month, she's French.

If anyone fancies having a look its a great flat, modern, clean, all bills/internet are included.

Any questions, send me a PM, or give us a call on 15210597419.

All the Best,

Mr. S:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

I think as long as you go to the University before registration and they can prove you are who you are then it shouldn't be a problem.

It's a bit strange for the embassy to keep your forms though...

Have you asked the embassy for the originals? I just submitted copies to the embassy.

Is anyone planning to do Tai Chi or some chinese calligraphy / has anyone does this in the past?

In my case, the chinese embassy in Lisbon made a few copies of my BLCU papers for their use and returned the originals to me.

thanks guys!

i just cant contact the embassy cause of the spring festival. i dont live in Athens(Greece) and in my town we dont have chinese consulate...that is why i send a travel agent to apply the documents and he gave not only the copies but the original too! Here in Greece dont know anything about the chinese visa procedure!:cry:i think i have to be patient.

Anyone know how many foreign students actually attend BLCU?

I'm happy so many newbies like me have found this group but I imagine we're only a small handful of the actual number.

hopefully i get a good roomate and have tons of fun things to do besides studying. i'll probably be in the lowest level class...
