Chengdu Safari

Is there a better way to learn Mandarin than getting out onto the streets and getting stuck in?

The safari is about throwing you into real life situations and seeing how you handle them.

  • Order your favourite dish
  • Buy items of clothing

Immersion is what we believe in and the Safari is exactly that.

Your Chinese teacher will accompany you to these locations. Your level will be catered for and the Safari is split into three parts which are as follows

Warm up :

  • Explain what you aim to achieve in the lesson. Understand and pick up the vocabulary and sentences you need to succeed.

The Safari :

  • Get out there, get exploring and complete your set mission.

Cool Down :

  • Questions or problems? Need feedback? This is the time to do it as you wind down and see what you did well, and what can be improved on.
