Learn Chinese in China

Studying in Nanjing


Recommended Posts

Hello everone.


I am a girl student from Romania and I want to come to China with a Confucius Institute scholarship. 


I would like to study in Nanjing for a year or more, but I have several questions :


1. How is the air quality? Is it so bad as I heared?

2. How is the life in campus ? :D

3. The classes are in chinese or also in english ?


Thank you very much!


This is my email adress : removed

Real-time air quality information can be found here: http://aqicn.org/city/nanjing/

Historical data will require two or three minutes of Google research.

nanjing is great! very green, relatively clean, and cheap!

the only downsides are:

* the heat, famously one of the four hottest cities in china.

* not many upscale restaurants


1. air quality is relatively good for a large coastal city

2. not sure about your college, i'd say if you are chinese it's good. if not it's probably going to be pretty weird, but you're an exchange student so it's probably going to be a bit challenging wherever you go really...

3. again depends on your college.


personally i'd really recommend studying chinese for a few years before going, regardless of the availability of english coursework.

( if you can read a book with a little help then you should be ok...)

nanjing isn't a first-tier city and does not have many english speakers.

people do speak fairly unaccented mandarin, however!
