I can honestly say that I have had a great few months studying here at YTU, despite the horrendously early 8am starts five days a week! The teachers are all very kind and you are immersed (at my level at least) in a completely Mandarin-speaking environment throughout your time here, which is clearly very beneficial towards your Chinese progress. International students come from all over the world, with particularly large numbers of Korean, Russian, Kazakh and Japanese students, making YTU a place where you can make friends with people from all over the world. My Chinese has improved considerably during my short time here and, although I am currently only at YTU on a one-term scholarship, the fantastic experience I have had here makes it likely that I will be continuing my studies at YTU next term.
