If you are in China now, do you think you have chosen the right school? If you have not come to China, then you have to check the information to make proper choice.
First of all, let’s see some data and information.
Explaination to this chart, 1)those provinces do not have capital city means they are municapities. 2) the average tuition fee in each city is for 1 year Chinese language program only. Other majors are not included.
Misunderstanding of choosing school to study Chinese language
1.I must study in Beijing, because it is the capital city and people there all speak standard Mandarin. Besides culture in this city is profound.
2.I must study in those schools whose name have language, culture and foreign studies. All those schools that are famous for language.
3.I must study in Shanghai or Guangdong, because it is big and international city.
Of course your idea seems correct and great. But please pay attention to following points.
1.China is a country with thousands of years’ history. Beijing is not the only city with many historic sites and profound culture.
2.China is a country combined by 56 people. Even the citizen from the same city speak different dialects. Like Xianning , a city in Hubei province, people speak 8 kinds of dialects in Xianning. So whether the citizen in that city speak dialect or mandarin is not so important. Most important of all is the atmosphere around you and what and how the teachers, students, classmates speak.
3.Beijing, Shanghai and Guangong is the dreaming city not only for you international students, but also for Chinese. But you can see the data we collected lately. The average tuition fee and accommodation fee is the highest. We have to take this into consideration when choosing school as studying abroad will cost much to our family.
At last, we select some schools for you. They are not in big city. Their name do not have language or culture. But you can find they are wonderful for international students to study Chinese.

2.Tuition fee of Language in this school is 10000RMB/Y. It’s much cheaper than most cities.
