Brandon • USA • BMA Summer 2014CSA is an excellent program and I would highly recommend the program to anyone who wants to learn more Chinese and learn more about China. It was awesome living with a Chinese family and really getting to know the people and their culture. Their classes were intensive and engaging and had immediate practical application. My teachers were very enthusiastic and have great strategies for helping you to use the material. My tutor was well trained and will help you to learn more Chinese than you thought was possible. I learned so much about China and I have a completely new perspective from when I arrived. The excursions with CSA were perfect for learning about historical sites, culture, and the food. Even if you want to go exploring on your own CSA's team knows all of the best places to visit. From camping on the Great wall, to bargaining in the Pearl Market, to foot massages, and the dinner table conversations I had with my host my trip to China was an experience that I will never forget.
