Language learning and cultural activities

Marco Polo, the 13th century Italian explorer, called Hangzhou "the most splendid and luxurious city in the world". It’s not a stretch to say that our city is the most beautiful in China. Hangzhou has gorgeous gardens and most notably the West Lake, which has inspired both ancient and contemporary poems. Being one of the ancient capitols of China, there is no shortage of historical sites and attractions to visit. Hangzhou has a relaxed atmosphere and a very low crime rate. The parks and museums are free, a rarity in China these days. Our Chinese school organizes several after-class activities during the week and a tour over the weekend, such as Tai Chi classes, a visit to a tea house, a boat ride on West Lake, movie nights, a visit to a Buddhist temple, a visit to the silk museum, an excursion to Thousand-Isle Lake, etc. We also organize language exchanges, where you can share conversation with a local who wants to learn English.
