4. One on One / Group Classes
As a supplement to your studies or by themselves, some private classes can take your language abilities to the next level. Whether you’d prefer to study by yourself or combine with a friend or two, we’ll arrange a suitable teacher for you. Use one of our comfortable classrooms or if you’d prefer arrange home tuition. We have teachers from the 4 corners of Beijing so there’s no need to travel far and being private means that you choose what and how you’d like to study.

5. Internship Program
Application based

1. The Great Wall
The Great Wall is probably one of the most recognised landmarks in the world, and situated so close to Beijing, to miss out on such a historical icon would be a waste. This famous landmark, following the historical northern borders of China, offers both aging and restored sections of wall, together providing a magnificent doorway to the past. Look to the distance to see the wall extending like a great dragon tail over the hills and then to your feet as you imagine standing guard as a Chinese sentry.

2. Kung Fu Show (The Legend of Kung Fu)
Join us in experiencing “The Legend of Kung Fu,” the story of a young boy who in following his childhood Kung Fu dreams finds himself on a road of enlightenment filled with challenges and temptations. A combination of modern dance and traditional Kung Fu make this a unique and unforgettable trip. English subtitles keep the audience well informed, although with fantastic special effects, set designs and costumes it is difficult to tear your eyes from the stage.

3. Summer Palace
The given English name Summer Palace certainly doesn’t do this magnificent must-see justice, however 颐和园 literally translated “Gardens of Nurtured Harmony” comes a little closer. Starting life as a simple Garden, Summer Palace grew larger as artisans emulated architectural styles from around China. A perfect example of this is its Kunming Lake, built to imitate Hangzhou’s equally famous West Lake. Numerous gardens, hills, and pagodas combined with other unique monuments such as the Marble Boat pavilion make this an easy choice.

4. Acrobatics Show
A host of the most skilled acrobats, gymnasts and contortionists from all over China have come together to create a spectacular and varied acrobatics performance here in Beijing. This show has become one of the most popular attractions to both local and foreign travellers visiting Beijing, and with its spinning hoops, centrifugal bikes and feats of unparalleled human strength to name but a few, it’s easy to see why.

5. LaoShe Tea House
A visit to the LaoShe Tea House is a must for anyone wishing to sample a variety of Chinese cultural experiences. Tea is of coursea big part of Chinese culture, and when combined with frequent live performances outlining other important aspects of China’s extensive culture and history, leaving with a widened perspective of China is inevitable.

6. Temple of Heaven
In China’s history, the Emperor of China was considered the Son of Heaven, and it’s not hard to see the importance of this in the complex of religious buildings known as the Temple of Heaven. Including the Hall of Prayer, The Imperial Vault of Heaven and The Circular Mound Altar, and all following strict philosophical requirements, these structures housed sacrifices and prayer ceremonies that were carried out to perfection in fear of a bad harvest. The presence of symbolism can be found throughout the Temple of Heaven, including a tall semi-circular northern wall representing Heaven and a short rectangular southern wall representing the Earth.

7. Tiananmen Square
Tiananmen Square is most widely known for its part in the protests of 1989 but in reality has been the site of many important events in China’s history. To stand in the centre of the the world’s 3rd largest city square is to momentarily wear the shoes of chairmen, soldiers, students and the common man who personally witnessed an ever-evolving China.

8. The Forbidden City
Opposite Tiananmen, The Forbidden City took 14 years and more than a million workers to construct. Originally the Chinese Imperial Palace during Ming and Qing dynasties before being enlarged to its modern day size, its large area houses the Palace Museum and served as the home and political centre for the Chinese Government. Its vast number of gates, towers and walls turns a trip to The Forbidden City into a maze of discovery as you wander through seemingly unexplored paths and peruse the varied decorations and beauty which covers every surface.

9. Exploring Beijing’s Food Scene
With China’s hugely varied cooking styles and local specialities it is not surprising that here in China’s capital a huge selection can be found. From classic spicy Sichuan delicacies to scorpion and snake on a stick, there’s something for everyone.

10. Phoenix Mountain
As great as Beijing is, sometimes it’s just nice to get out of the city. Boasting green hills, clear water, rolling ridges and thick forests, Phoenix Mountain offers some great trails to stretch your legs after a busy week of study.

11. Cutting up Culture
Learn some Taichi, Chinese Calligraphy and Paper Cutting to add to your new found Chinese abilities.

12. DIY Delicacies
Having wet your appetite with the huge number of Chinese delicacies to be found in Beijing, why ­­not try your hand at cooking some. Noodles, dumplings and the literally translated tomato fried egg are just some of the Chinese specialties you will be able to try.

1. Home stay
The home stay option gives students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the life of a real Chinese family. This often proves a great way to practice your Mandarin, raise your confidence level and learn about Chinese culture.

Your host family will provide breakfast and dinner and of course access to TV, phone and Internet. As with all accommodation options you will have access to laundry and kitchen facilities. The average travel time to campus is 30 minutes by public transportation. On arrival we will help you familiarize yourself with your surroundings and the local transport system.

2. Student Dorm (Single/Double)
In this option students choose to live in a single or double room just minutes away from either the East-West base or University, depending on course choice.

Your room provides all the amenities and comforts of a basic American Hotel, including TV, phone and Internet access. Each room also contains bathroom facilities, heating/air conditioning and access to laundry and kitchen facilities.

The dooms never fail to provide a rich and friendly environment, filled with a wide selection of nationalities, each heading toward the same goal.

3. Private Studio
For students needing a little more freedom and privacy the private studio option offers just that. Enjoy a comfortable style of living designed by you, suiting your own needs and habits.

Each apartment includes Internet access, TV, phone, air conditioning, kitchen and laundry facilities. To make your life even easier we can provide a cleaning service if your wish. This option will place you 10 to 20 minutes from campus by public transportation.

The majority of our programs are accredited by the Chinese Ministry of Education. East-West Connection also offers many additional services allowing you to get the most out of your study and enjoy an easy and memorable China adventure.
