Congratulations to three students who won
the 2020 academic Year Scholarship!
For many differing reasons, I had previously tried and failed to get a grip of the Chinese language. While this may sound trite and contrived, SICC really did help me take significant steps in rectifying this.
The curriculum offers a fantastic platform to learn with two textbooks neatly dovetailing each other. There are a broad range of modules covering many aspects of daily life, however, the content often reaches beyond what is required providing a deeper understanding. After studying for two semesters, I’m now working towards HSK level 4 and have found I’m already familiar with more new vocabulary than I anticipated.
Above all else, the key differential has been the teachers. It’s clear that great pride is taken in their work, the passion and commitment of which has kept me motivated. 唯言语无法表达我丰富的感情！
My overall experience at Shanghai International College of Culture has been amazing. I started as someone with no fluency beyond “Nĭ hăo” and now after a year I can generally know what my neighbours are gossiping about. It is not just boring language learning it is also cultural experiences that we re-enforce the material taught. I highly recommend this school for a Mandarin learning experience.
