How many students are in one class?

In the mornings the students learn Chinese in small classes of 2-4 students. Maximum six students in peak seasons.

In the afternoons the students all join into one group to take part in the cultural classes, every year the students leave Omeida with new friends for life!

Who will be my teacher?

The teachers at Omeida are very excited to welcome all the Students for the summer camp and they become a mentor to them. They are passionate about making Chinese learning super fun and easy for students and are experienced in teaching Chinese as a second language. They are patient and understand that children need the time and understanding when learning something new. Our staff are professionally trained in how to break-down the course content into easy-to-remember segments, therefore, the course will suit all skill levels, ages, and learning types.

We only allow fully qualified teachers with teaching experience to guide the students and help them learn Chinese in China. The key difference between us and other schools is that we guarantee that a professional teacher will teach you and not just a native speaker.  We do this to ensure you make rapid improvement and enjoy your classes at Omeida.

The teachers soon become friends with the students and not before long the students love learning Chinese!

What teaching methods do you use?

The teachers at Omeida place themselves in the shoes of the student and they are all young at heart! The teachers are energetic and they teach using interactive methods and play fun games with the students in the class. We understand that a student learns much faster when the content is delivered in a fun and exciting manner!

This differs from other colleges where you may have to deal with large classes and course content which focuses on memorization and repetition. We ensure that you will learn quickly, so you can enjoy the difference at Omeida!

How do you determine my Mandarin level?

We will place you in a class with other students at a similar level anywhere from beginner to proficient.
A placement test is given before starting your course in order to make sure you are placed at the correct level.

We will arrange your placement test at a convenient time for you, (usually via Skype) about one week before your arrival. Your teacher will then regularly evaluate your progress and may periodically move you up to a new level.

What are the requirements to apply?

Students from 12 years and older can come without a parent, however Omeida recommends that students younger than 16 years old come with an adult. Parents can join to different activity with school or kids; also school can arrange traveling around city and different activity such as Traditional Chinese Medicine.(Light Show, Massage, Bamboo Rafting, Rock Climbing)

"I came to Yangshuo with a group of 17 students, and the mountains and rivers amazed us. Our dorms were cute and weren’t far from the school. The canteen wasn’t far either and had really delicious food and our favorite food was dumplings. Our teacher was great and the class wasn’t too hard. I understood everything. My favorite activity was cave exploring and it felt like we were in a movie. I really like Yangshuo!" 

"There’s a saying that Guilin has the most beautiful mountains and rivers on earth, and Yangshuo has the most beautiful mountains and rivers in Guilin. They’re definitely right. I think it’s the most beautiful place in China. I looked at pictures of Yangshuo with my mom before coming, but when I got there the beauty surpassed my imagination. I learned a lot, and we had many activities such as rafting, rock climbing, hiking, cave exploring, and eating Chinese food. I’ll never forget this trip!"
