MilesM Posted November 3, 2014 at 11:11 PM Report Share Posted November 3, 2014 at 11:11 PM Hi, all! I am planning to study Mandarin for a year in China, so I am trying to decide where to go. I will be going on a pretty significant scholarship, so the money isn't really an issue; I just need to find a quality program. I studied Mandarin for a semester already in Shanghai (at East China Normal University). I have thought about just returning there and doing their language program again but at a higher level. However, I feel like I should explore going to a different part of China. I've been researching different cities, and Qingdao has stuck out to me. From what I've read, it's a beautiful coastal city and was even ranked the best place to live in China. So I'd like to know if there are any good language programs in which I could enroll for a year (and by a year, I really mean about 40 weeks). When I studied in Shanghai, I took group classes. This time, I would prefer to have one-on-one lessons with a school that also provides accommodation. These requirements don't have to be met; I am just listing my preferences just in case there is such a school in Qingdao. Thank you so much for the help!
