Look what past interns have to say...
Alexander - "My two months of internship in Beijing which was arranged for me was one of the best times I had in my life so far. I made a lot of new friends from China and all over the world, and I definitely want to keep in touch with many of them. After my 2-month-stay was over, I was very sad to leave as I really had a great time that I will keep in my mind and in my heart forever. For sure I will return to Beijing and can only recommend this program to anyone who is planning to do an internship and a Chinese language course in Beijing. Do it, it's a huge load of fun!!"

Juan Carlos - "Everything started when I decided to go to Beijing to do an internship and get to know at first-hand how the country that will change the world in the next years is. Once I was there, I was picked up from the airport and we went to my apartment in a traditional Chinese neighborhood.  The apartment had all the facilities like air conditioner, TV, kitchen with everything, etc, I felt very well-attended. I was impressed with the Chinese classes I attended, the company I worked for, and the travels organized around China. It was an extremely good decision and an unforgettable experience."
