Love spicy food in China, but not animal intestines? Then this module is for you.

China has a hugely varied cuisine, but this variety can feel a little scary when stepping into the unknown!

Not every menu has English or pictures, and sometimes the English can be, let’s say rather bad!!

The Monday Module will help you navigate the wonderful world of Chinese cuisine and save you from bad experiences.


Haggle, bargain and save money by speaking Chinese with us.

There are many, many bargains to be had at the markets and stalls throughout China but where to start?

How to get the best price if your Mandarin is limited? Where do you even begin? Don’t fear, we are here! 

Our Tuesday module will teach you not only the Mandarin you need, but also techniques for getting the best deal! Winner, winner!


Hotels, trains and planes. How to find and book them when you’re new to China?

It’s one thing getting around the bigger cities like Beijing and Shanghai, but what about the rest?

This module will help you navigate buying and booking tickets, but also offer you other key advice.

As amazing as Beijing and Shanghai are, China has some sublime spots which you should absolutely discover, and that’s where this module comes in!

THURSDAY – Friends!

Chat and talk with Chinese locals.

Travelling is of course more than just checking out the famous sites. To truly understand the culture of a new country you should interact with the locals.

We will teach you about culture and customs, and how not to offend the people you meet.

Come to China and we’ll help you make friends for life.

FRIDAY – Nightlife!

It’s time to sample the nightlife!

Ready for some drinks, romance and fun in Mandarin? Each Friday night we get ready for the bustling weekend as people around the nation unwind after a long week.

You will learn where to go, how to order drinks, and even how to flirt!

Our Friday module is certainly one of the most popular!
