Why Choose Omeida Chinese Academy?
We have so much to be proud of. There really is a big difference between choosing to study in a big busy city or choosing a small quiet town. You still have all the necessities and a whole lot more. Come to Yangshuo and check out our Chinese Mandarin immersion learning center.
Our school is situated in one of the most beautiful regions of China. Surrounded by an endless landscape of southern China’s famous Karst hills, Yangshuo is a famous foreigner-friendly travelers’ destination near Guilin.
The town is relatively small, clean, an excellent source for almost any Western comfort, and a hub for all sorts of guided and unguided outdoor activities (cycling, rock climbing, bamboo rafting, kayaking, hiking, etc.)
The main attraction to this area is its surrounding scenery. The region is defined by its tall, steep hills that are intimately dispersed across the landscape of beautiful winding rivers. Those who haven’t heard of Yangshuo have certainly seen it represented in traditional Chinese ink paintings.
There is a sort of magic to the small town. Yangshuo is a truly captivating place, and it’s free for our students to go out and explore.
Several times every week, we provide our students with extra-curricular opportunities to become further immersed in Chinese culture.
In any given week, we also have a social night where we do group activities with Chinese students learning English and a Saturday outing where we do something around Yangshuo or the nearby countryside.
Once every two weeks, the Chinese Academy has a cultural event where students will learn Chinese culture (calligraphy, tai chi, tea-making, and more).
Outside our regular activities, your experience will also be enriched by holiday celebrations, monthly class dinners, and everyday interaction with native Chinese students. In every case, our goal is to keep you completely immersed in the Chinese language and culture. We’re leaving you with the tools to dig as deep as you want.
Inexpensive, comfortable lifestyle
Here you will be able to clear your mind and really make space for the Mandarin you are about to learn. Being based in a small town not only allows you to get away from the hustle of big cities but you also get to stretch your money and get more worth. It takes away the stress and helps you to be more comfortable.
At an affordable cost, you can choose to have your tuition cover the cost of your housing and meals along with your Chinese classes. If not, the town of Yangshuo still provides comfortable living as well as quality Chinese food and Western food at a fair price.
The affordability of Yangshuo also helps us keep our courses reasonably priced. Schools situated in larger cities can uphold similar standards to ours in their curriculum, but the cost will always be significantly higher because operating in large cities is more expensive.
