Leo Carter, from Rice University, Texas, US, joined one week one-on-one tutoring program and 4 week Chinese program at BLCU.

It was really a good opportunity to live in the homestay environment, because it made me use the language everyday, all day long. I was forced to communicate with people that couldn't communication with me in my own language, so it was great, the best way to learn. Also I have to say my tutor was great, she was very friendly and spoke English. She helped me with everything. She showed me many places in Beijing. The classes were great, you can choose your level of difficulty and you can have a lot of freedom to explore the city on your own. It was really a good opportunity, so I recommend it.
