As part of the course you’ll spend a year immersing yourself in China so you can understand the culture and develop your language skills. Some students even go on to work part-time at Beijing International Studies University (BISU) as teaching assistants. Develop your language skills Depending on your level of language fluency and understanding, you’ll enter either the beginners or intermediates stream, where you’ll learn and develop your language skills.
