Overall rating: 10 based on 1 reviews

Program Description

Go Abroad China is extremely skilled in planning gap years and so we have continuously increased enrollment in our programs. Our Gap Year Program includes an internship, language study, and volunteer opportunities with interesting accommodation plans like homestays. Homestays are beneficial since they allow complete immersion in a local family which will give the program participant insight into the local culture. Our program is flexible and geared towards the interests and goals of the participant. Work towards language fluency with our accredited International Language Centres that include institutes and universities. This program will prepare you for university enrollment or a future career. Our certified programs and internship opportunities are great ways for you to add to your CV/resume.

If you are looking to begin studying a new language or to improve on your abilities, Go Abroad China has a class that is just for you. Participants can opt for an intensive course or enroll in a relaxed program with fewer hours of studying. This would allow you ample time to explore or use your time in an internship. Pick a destination, a time frame, and let us know your interests or career prospects so that we can design a course for you.

    I had the opportunity of a lifetime and got to study abroad in BLCU in Beijing China, through Go Abroad China I always knew I wanted to study abroad, but it was an overwhelming thought with all of the options of places to go, figuring out how to make it work with my university and all the little details in between. GAC helped make the entire process smooth and enjoyable. I had an advisor the whole way through who helped me make sure I was as ready as possible for my trip abroad. Once I was there, I had the most amazing 2 months of my life.

    At BLCU University Classes began soon after registration and the pace of learning was definitely not what I was used to before. Back at home, sentence structures and phrases that would take me at least a month to fully master, at BLCU University it was just a week’s task. Although in the beginning I felt a bit overwhelmed, after a while, though, things got much better and I adjusted comfortably. One thing I am still reeling about even now is the amount of homework that the Chinese teachers assigned! Now I understand why they say at least six months of serious Mandarin/ Chinese study will lead to accelerated results. The good thing about BLCU University is that they will place you in a class of people who have a similar Chinese ability to you. Learning was fun, interactive and it’s relatively simple to feel motivated if everyone around you is also determined

    I had different teachers for each aspect of Chinese study: listening, speaking, reading and comprehensive Chinese. I particularly enjoyed the speaking lessons as they were about group work and small oral presentations in a class of approximately 10 people. It was fun interacting with my classmates coming from different countries, yet all trying our best to communicate in Chinese. One important tip that was surprisingly effective for me was surrounding myself with friends whose English wasn’t so good, this was good in that we were forced to communicate in Chinese and practice everything we learnt.  


    I created life long friendships, got to see the most spectacular views and most of all I got to experience a different culture and truly appreciate what they had to offer. I highly encourage everyone to study abroad!
