I had been to Yangshuo on many occasions over a couple of years, and knew the Omeida English Language College well, run by Odar, a really nice guy, I had been to a few English corners on several visits. I knew the reputation of the Chinese Academy was also great, and also run by Odar, and so I decided to spend 2 months there, studying.
The teachers are great , really friendly and dedicated, my teachers were Becky and Helen,both fantastic, and and the courses are flexible to your needs, and after the 2 months I found I had made great progress with my Chinese !
If you are looking for a Chinese course that can be truly flexible to your individual needs, then I can highly recommend you call in here. And the fees are really very reasonable, particularly as you can get one on one teaching if preferred !
You can also take advantage of language exchange with some of the students from the English college, a great way to help your Chinese, and help their English....you will find them really enthusiastic to get to know you ! You will make a lot of friends on your visit !
On top of that , Yangshuo is a beautiful location to study, awesome scenery, friendly people, and the food is great, with something for everyone. And talking of food, there are plenty of western influenced cafes and restaurants if you fear you will miss your western food !!
If you want to study Chinese, Omeida in Yangshuo is the place to be !!
