China is more than simply Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. Come experience the unique local cultures and majestic landscapes of Guangxi, a fog-shrouded, mountainous region along the borders of Vietnam. Home to a range of peoples—Han Chinese, Thai-speaking Zhuang, and hill dwelling Miao—Guangxi reflects the complex diversity of contemporary China.
Our program offers unique immersion experiences and outdoor adventure. Learn Chinese with well trained teachers and peer students from Guangxi and other parts of China, spend time with a local family in the bustling metropolis of Nanning, hike the precipitous Dragon’s Back Rice Terraces, and work with local activists to preserve endangered cultural practices. You will also have the opportunity to assist American teachers in providing American classroom experiences to Chinese peer students. The program aims to foster student skills in intercultural communication, global understanding, leadership and independence.
