BEST CAMPSITE AND ACCOMMODATION AMONG BEIJING CAMPS

We are proud of offering high quality campsite at Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU) campus —- best campsite and accommodation among camps based in Beijing.

Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU) was founded in 1962. It is the only international university in China with its main task set at teaching the Chinese language and culture to foreign students.

BLCU campus covers an area of 38 hectares, is located in the Zhongguancun Scientific and Technological Park and along Xueyuan Road. The garden-like campus provides a comfortable living and studying environment for students from both home and abroad. Places for students' studying and recreation are usually imbued with Chinese cultural features that make the campus more attractive to international students.

With a building area of 5,040 square meters, the university sports center is fully equipped with various sports facilities, including: football field, Swimming center, Badminton courts, volleyball court and basketball court.

On the campus, a variety of restaurants can meet the needs of different students, serving Chinese, Western-style, Islamic (or Moslem) food and fast food. Also, you may easily find on-campus bank, post office and school hospital with 24/7 emergency room.

Accommodation
Students will stay in an on-campus four-star university-owned hotel – Geosciences International Conference Center. It is safe and comfortable. They will stay in a twin room with bathroom with 24hours hot water shower; air-conditioner; all sets of furniture; cable TV; etc. There is free WIFI connection in the lobby and free cable internet access in rooms. Counselors also stay on the same floor with students.

Course
Our distinguished Chinese courses focus on developing the four main language skills in Chinese: speaking, listening, reading and writing, while each has its own emphasis in interesting and highly efficient ways.

Students will accept Chinese level assessment on the first day of camp (both speaking test and writing test), and be placed into different group according to the test result. We have a group of experienced professional Chinese language instructors. They all hold master degrees in teaching Chinese as a foreign language, have at least 5 years of teaching experience, especially our teaching supervisor has over 10 years experience of teenager Chinese education.

For beginners, speaking and listening abilities will be emphasized while for Chinese origin students, the course will develop in depth their skills on Chinese character recognition, paragraph speaking and writing. For those students coming from international schools which run AP/IB/IGCSE program, they will receive supportive and comprehensive guidance and evaluation on examination preparation.

Except for Chinese course, a set of interesting Chinese culture enhanced courses will be introduced to students, such as Chinese history, martial arts, calligraphy, Chinese painting, traditional instruments, paper cutting, engraving, etc. Culture courses help students get a thorough understanding of Chinese language and culture in a relaxing way which will benefit their language learning.

Certificate issued by Beijing Language and Culture University will be offered to students after passing the final exam. Also we would love to help with academic credit transfer by providing transcript and other documents that school needs.

Trips
We schedule 4 whole-day Beijing city tours as well as a 3-days Inner Mongolia field trip. (please find the details in sample schedule and brochure.)

Trips always are the most exciting part of our camp. Students will enjoy the great view of Beijing like the Great Wall, 2008 Beijing Olympic stadiums, the Forbidden City and traditional Hutong. Also have fun time in the water park of Water Cube – the largest water park in Asian, best choice in hot summer time! Hiking, canoeing, picnic, show…and a lot more!
