International Students' Center Beijing
In response to the rapid development of China?s economy due to the reforms policy, World Trade Organization (WTO) and the upcoming 2008 Olympics, Mandarin is becoming the 2nd universal language. A lot of people from around the world are going to China just to study the language itself. The usual reason people answer on why they study mandarin is that you would have more opportunities with regards to finding a job since most companies now do prioritize people who knows how to speak mandarin.
Getting into China is difficult especially when you do not know how to speak the language. I suggest that you find an institute or agency that would help you through your visa documents in getting into the country and has knowledge on well-known universities offering Chinese Language Programs. It would make everything easier, less hassle on your part because they will be the one to process all necessary documents that a student needs to get admitted at a university and they can suggest places on where you will be staying when you get to China.
