Dealing with the Chinese Education System – Going to school in China

I’ve now been studying my master’s in China for a few months already. This is not the first time I’m at a Chinese university so I feel like I have enough experience from different places and schools in China to share my experience with you guys.

Where should I study Mandarin in China?

When you want to study Mandarin in China, there are different factors to consider before moving over there to start your studies. I didn’t know much about this before I ended up in southern China studying the language where I think I learned a bit about the ups and downs on this topic. Here are a few things to consider before deciding where you want to study Mandarin in China.

How to apply for university in China

I’m from a country where applying for university is the absolute easiest thing to do. It takes two minutes to log into the Danish university website, type in personal number and click on three degrees in Denmark, you wish to apply for. We only have three choices and a month before starting university, we will receive an email informing us where we are going to study. Before going abroad, I didn’t know about personal statements and recommendations. Now, I know and I learned it the hard way. I learned it when I screwed it up in China. Applying in China is not as easy as Denmark but not horribly problematic either. It can happen and with a little advice from here, I hope it’ll go smooth and easy for you.

Chinese Radio – How?

After coming home again, it can be hard to keep up your Chinese language skills but don’t worry, there are ways to keep it going. Practicing Chinese in a busy everyday life can be tricky when no Chinese people are around you and you don’t have to haggle in Chinese or try to explain to a confused taxi driver where you are going in Chinese.

How to practice Chinese when coming back home

I’m back in Denmark, only for the next eight months but it’s still a long time without my daily doses of Chinese conversations. After spending a month here, I can already feel how my Chinese language skills aren’t as they used to be. I start to forget words I could easily remember before. I speak more slowly and with a foreign accent. This is very annoying so I’m trying to find ways to increase my language proficiency outside of China. So today, let’s share our ideas on how to keep up our Chinese language in a non-Chinese environment.
