Each teacher is a native speaker, and instruction is conducted in both Chinese and English, which facilitates adaptation and accelerates learning progress.
About the educational program: on the first day (arrival) all international students undergo a test, which will determine their level of knowledge (from elementary to advanced). Students can apply for the course even with a minimum level of preparation (from Beginner). In accordance with the test results, a training program is selected and training groups are identified. The educational courses are organized when the group ap to 15 people is formed.
The emphasis of the program:
The courses are held at the Beijing Professional Institute of NongYe.
The institute's residences are ready to receive all participants of the summer program. For them, comfortable and cozy rooms for 3 people are prepared: each has a complete set of necessary furniture (bedside tables, beds, wardrobe), toilet and shower, the rooms are equipped with air conditioning. The residence is located directly on the campus, so the daily way to the academic building will only take a couple of minutes.
Students feed themselves at their own expense: there is a beautiful dining room that offers a wide variety of dishes, including samples of national cuisine.
The cost of $ 1040 includes: tuition ($ 690) + accommodation in 3-bed rooms ($ 350).
Meals: pay everywhere in RMB. The estimated amount for one lunch or dinner is 5-20 yuan. That is 50-60 yuan per day.
The center can help in organizing weekend excursions. Types of additional excursions and costs will be formed closer to summer. Based on the experience of previous years, many students sit on the subway by themselves and go to interesting places of interest, such as Tiananmen Square, the sky temple, Beihai Park, etc. They pay only for the subway (4-5 yuan one way) and the cost of entrance tickets (maximum 60 yuan for the forbidden city, the rest for 40-20 yuan per person).
The school manager supervises all questions of the parents. If there is a need for help on the first day, if you do not know the language of both Chinese and English, someone, who knows the same language, will certainly come to them. Then the children are already acquainted, and in most cases they will solve their own issues on their own.
Course price: 1040 $. The indicated cost is already included:
This cost does not include and is paid additionally:
When opening a visa we can issue a standard basic insurance in any bank. The cost of this insurance for China is about 300 yuan / 2 weeks, 600 yuan / 4 weeks. The details of the coverage and all insurance conditions you can check on the company's website in an online consultant or by calling the site of the bank. Children are different, and parents can independently buy insurance according to their requirements (including or not including certain insurance coverage). We also recommend giving the child all the medicines that are necessary to him.
We arrange transfer for an additional fee. Its cost is 40 $ / person / one way. When transferring the child will meet a representative with a sign - the name of the center or the name of the child. If required, in addition, the airlines have escort services when the child is received by the airline representative and then passes the child to the meeting of the representative of the educational institution. This service costs about $ 100 one way. Flight duration is about 8 hours from European countries. Approximate cost of round-trip tickets - 50 000 - 70 000, depending on the company.
