BICC helped me a lot on progressing my Chinese ability.

BICC helped me a lot on progressing my Chinese ability.

Teachers here are all friendly and enthusiastic.

On my first day here, my Chinese was really bad. I wasn’t able to read, listen and understand anything at that time; therefore, I got abundant troubles on living. But through learning at BICC, I’ve been getting used to the daily life here. If I’ve only taken Chinese classes at the universities, the learning progress wouldn’t be so great.

However, I wish I had other peers in the class and more chances to chat with the teachers. Due to the one-on-one teaching style, I wasn’t able to do so. I believe that my learning would be more exciting if I have had more interactions with others.

Our six-month learning here is end. I hope to have affairs on work which are more connected with China when I return to Japan.

I especially thank the teachers here and BICC.

Hope to see you again!

BICC Provides a Conducive Environment for Learning

The well organized classes, under the Chinese Language and Culture Courses for Embassy Officials Program, and the very experienced and skilled teachers have made me feel confident and at ease in a Chinese environment.
The teaching methods and care given to students encourage fast learning and understanding. Grateful if the students could be more encouraged to like and write Chinese characters, which many of us take to be very hard, but which I understand can facilitate a faster learning and understanding of the language.
I encourage those who are interested in learning the Chinese language and Culture to join BICC for faster learning and understanding with utmost comfort.

Great experience really useful to learn a bit more on China and the Chinese language

I attended this course with a limited knowledge of the language and I immediately learn a lot of words and expressions which were really useful in my common life in Beijing.
The methodology used by the teachers was always good and professional. Also the class environment was perfect and I always felt very well, as the teachers did a great job in establishing a friendly approach with the students.
I really think that the courses performed by the BICC are well structured and could help foreign people to learn Chinese, understand the Chinese culture and to have better and friendly relationship with Chinese people.
I am very happy to have attended this course and I will suggest to anybody may need to learn Chinese to come to the BICC.
Thanks a lot to all the BICC staff.

Best place to learn Chinese

BICC is a great place to get to know Chinese culture and to learn Chinese. The athmosphere is professional and at the same time relaxed. My Chinese level is improved very quickly with the course in BICC. All the teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful. They teach Chinese effective and easy way. They also offer plenty of activities to learn Chinese culture, which are very helpful for understanding and enjoying Chinese culture. I would like to thank the administration, teachers and staff of BICC for their dedication and generosity. I recommend all my friends as a best place to learn Chinese.

I have just finished a 3mos language program and I am very pleased and satisfied with the overall quality of studies. I took the twice a week sessions with Wednesday options to engage in social activities the school arrange. Its very engaging. I had instructions before in other schools but i must say that BICC offered the best program at my level. I would not hesitate to recommend highly BICC in the future.

Chinese and China Made Easier

The BICC makes learning Chinese an engaging and fulfilling experience. The college's teachers are excellent - the classes are lively, well-balanced and above all, informative. Language, culture and history all make for a context-driven learning environment which is easy to follow and digest. The rest is up to you.

How can this program be improved?
Perhaps more exercises/home work should be given to students to practice in their spare time.

There are fell students per class, so you can learn a lot. Also the teachers is change the style of teaching according to your preferences.
The school prepares different activities to learn more about the Chinese culture and train speaking Chinese, making friends with different nationalities.

How can this program be improved?
If I could change one thing from this program would be the price.

Nice experience in BICC

Before I went to China, my Chinese language ability is too bad. I just can say "Hello, Sorry...etc.".
But, through BICC's program and their teachers nice support, my Chinese was progressed rapidly.
Finally I could pass HSK level 6.

How can this program be improved?
If student can select or change teacher, it'll be better for us.
