Description

Chinese in Shanghai,enjoy your Chinese learning vacation in this city of FUN! This second city of the world's oldest surviving ancient civilization, Shanghai is actually very new with soaring modern art-deco skyscrapers.

Shanghai is also a port city on the Huangpu River and if you want to get away from the modern aspect of Shanghai, visit the former French Concession area with its grand old buildings along the riverfront.

Our school is located in the Former French Concession District (between Huaihai Lu and the Jinjiang Hotel). This is a charming neighborhood characterized by leafy, tree-lined streets, beautiful, old European architecture, and the chic shopping street Huai Hai Middle Road. The area offers many upscale boutiques, cafes, bars and shopping centers.

Our school is housed in a modern residential complex with private garden, comfortable, modern classrooms and lounge areas.
