I love the location of Omeida being surrounded by those iconic spire mountains. When I had time to bike around, I went off into the hills and villages. Such beautiful landscape. The teachers and staff at the school are superb. They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable, and it felt like home. I will miss their warm hearts and big smiles. I was definitely speaking more Mandarin than I thought I would by the time I left. If I had stayed one more month, I would have become very conversant. I had to work hard, no doubt, but the encouragement helped, too."
Omeida school is unbelievable, you feel at home, you feel relaxed and safe. You know that they will take care of everything, they give you good tips and excellent Chinese education. Studying here is like being at school and in the holiday simultaneously! So my advice is: if you want to have the time of your life come here in Yangshuo come to Omeida
Yangshuo is a wonderful place to learn Chinese and there are so many activities you can do during your free time, like renting a bike, hiking, rock climbing, swimming, clubbing and so on. Omeida is a great school with nice people and very good teachers. They support you in every situation around. I can totally recommend Omeida!
I started at Omeida with a very basic understanding of pronunciation, tones, and everyday phrases. Almost everyone I've met has been highly positive about the quality of the teachers and their Chinese progress. The teachers put a lot of effort into tailoring their teaching style so that the challenge was appropriate for the student.
My wife and I studied Mandarin here for two weeks prior to venturing further off the beaten track in mainland China. It was a quick two weeks but well worth it! The teachers are well engaged and the learning environment is excellent. We made many new friends here as well. It's definitely a must do if you are wanting to learn the language!
The Chinese lessons are very good: challenging but also an interesting great place to learn Chinese and a very beautiful one. I really liked Yangshuo! It's a small but very interesting town with many tourists coming from all over china and from western countries. I didn't know any Chinese when I arrived there and I was surprised how fast I had learned!
