Upon your arrival you will receive extensive diagnostic tests to identify your proficiency level, learning strengths and the areas in which we can help you improve, such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, reading, writing, listening and speaking.
When you begin your course, your Chinese counselor will share your test results with you and talk to you about what you would like to achieve. Your teacher or tutor will create a personalized "learning contract" for you and decide on the best plan for meeting your specific learning objectives.
Our expert teachers regularly monitor and assess your progress. You will receive regular consultations to discuss your development. Your teacher can advise you on the best study materials for you and how to practice your language skills outside the classroom, for example in your homestay family.
You will receive regular progress reports throughout the course and upon completion. These reports detail your proficiency, development and progress. You can use these documents as a record of your Chinese studies for schools, universities and employers.
Your language learning is never complete. Before you leave BICC we will provide you with guidance about how to continue improving your language skills when you return home. We can also help you apply to Chinese universities for further study.
