Chinese Classes

 

Hutong School's innovative teaching method is especially suitable for Western students. The main focus is on speaking in day-to-day situations and practicing what's been learned, in order to start communicating in real life. Students on our Summer Camps will learn in:

 

  • Small group classes (8 students max.)
  • Groups created according to student's Chinese level
  • Monday to Friday from 09:00 - 12:00
  • 3 x 50 minute lessons, with a 10-minute break between

 

 

"Hutong School is the backbone that makes your experience just that bit easier. The quality of the Chinese classes is good, the cultural activities are interesting and good for binding with new people. What makes Hutong School so great is probably the staff. Every staff member is a capable, friendly, happy person that you can bother about anything!"

Trips and Cultural Activities

 

summer camp abroad

We combine Chinese classes with a broad range of cultural activities, so that our students get the most out of their stay in China. Students will return home with more confidence and new knowledge of Chinese language and culture. 

 

 

 

Our Summer Camp participants will take part in 18 different activities, including:

  • Trips to historical and tourist sights of Beijing or Shanghai (The Great Wall, Summer Palace, French Concession, The Bund, and many others)
  • Lectures about living, studying and working in China 
  • Cultural activities organized by the school (Chinese opera, calligraphy etc.) to develop a broader understanding of Chinese history and culture.

 

 

Accommodation, Food and Transport

 

Our Summer Camp students will stay in a centrally located, modern youth hostel that's close to Hutong School. Accommodation is equipped with WiFi, air conditioning, a restaurant and a common area. 

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included for the duration of the program, and participants will be given the chance to try many different flavors of Chinese cuisine.

 

All transportation in China is included. Students will be picked up from and taken to the airport, and taken on trips, to tourist sights and to the school. 

 

 

"Because I was traveling on my own for the first time, I felt very nervous before arriving at Hutong School. Once I got there, everyone was so friendly, helpful, and welcoming. I wasn't worried anymore! Teachers were wonderful and the small class sizes really helped me get more out of my time.”
Evangelista, USA

 

 

24/7 Support and Mentorship

 

Leaving home and going to China can be a daunting and difficult task, but we do all we can to make our students feel at home. The comfort and well-being of all of our students is very important to us, so we will be there to support and supervise them during their entire stay.

 

Our team is always on hand to help. A supervisor will accompany students day and night throughout the camp, and the whole team is on standby to answer questions and assist with any specific requests. 

 

There will also be an interpreter available to resolve any language or cross-cultural communication issues and make the trip as smooth as possible.
