Not Ready to Leave China Yet? Become a Student!

Students practicing their Chinese

Never too late

Did your job contract finish already or did your work visa perhaps get rejected, but you’re just not ready to leave China yet? Or do you regret that you weren’t able to properly learn Chinese due to work? Well, now’s the perfect chance to pick up from where you left off in your textbook and go back to the classroom to learn Chinese! Omeida Chinese Academy is located in Yangshuo, one of the most beautiful sceneries in all of China. Our certified and qualified teachers can guide you through your journey of learning the language. We at Omeida offer both short and long term Chinese courses for those who want to learn the essentials or for those of you who want to dig deeper into Chinese grammar and culture.

Visa assistance

By now everyone has probably heard about China’s crackdown on its English education system in an effort to ease pressure on children and parents, supposedly. The campaign has forced many schools to shut down, but for those staying open, business is down by half. So much so, that some schools are now offering volunteer teacher programs to expats looking to live and work in China legally. Still, many have faced difficulties in finding a new job in time, while some have had to leave the country.

We know that getting a visa is no easy task, especially during these uncertain times. However, we have years of experience assisting students from all around the world with their visas and we are always updated on the latest news. Omeida is the only private Chinese language institution in Guangxi that is qualified to enroll international students on a long term basis and issue them with a student visa by using the JW202 visa application form that universities also provide. Please contact us beforehand to check if you’re eligible for obtaining a student visa. We are more than happy to answer your visa related questions.

Affordable and flexible

The best thing about studying Chinese at Omeida is the flexible schedule and the affordable price. Choose the Standard Course, which includes three 45 min lessons in the morning or the afternoon from Monday to Friday, if you want to spend half the day studying and the other half to either reviewing or exploring Yangshuo. If you prefer having more time on hand, there is the Part-Time Course with fewer lessons for half a year to one year. This is perfect if you want to learn Chinese at a much-relaxed pace.

Volunteer work

An additional option would be to do volunteering if you have a limited budget. This is in exchange for free accommodation and meals from the canteen. All you need to do is to volunteer on average 2 hours every day from Monday to Friday. A typical day would be 1 hour of English conversation (usually 1-on-1) with the English students and the rest depends on your interest or expertise, e.g. write blogs for the website, manage social media, assist the marketing team, etc. This is a popular choice amongst our past students.
