Experience Minds Abroad Exciting Summer Study & Travel Programs

By Tom Hopkins Subscribe to RSS | December 22nd 2011 | Views:

Minds Abroad’s Summer Study+Travel programs are customized for students who want the best of both worlds; to travel and to study and thereby learn everything in a holistic way. Spanning over several months, from May to August, the seven summer programs are packed with components that will give every student the most veritable insight into what China really was and what China is in various perspectives. All programs are a mix of studying in the morning, volunteering in the afternoon and weekend traveling to places in China’s interior, the rural towns and villages as well as to bustling, dazzling cities. Studying abroad in China has never been more exciting or complete. An additional zing to the programs has been incorporated by extending the trip value even further: students will also have a choice to choose not only China but India to their itinerary as well! Three of the seven Summer Study+Travel programs have an exciting India travel element which includes taking students to culturally rich Kolkata, the capital city of Delhi and the beautiful sublime Himalayan town of Darjeeling.

The weekday portion of the programs are based in Kunming, famed as the ‘Spring City’ which will allow students to get a balanced and authentic insight into the Chinese way of life, local customs and language. Students here will study in the morning with experienced teachers, who will be attending them as per their Mandarin level. The three students per class ratio makes it perfect for students to learn Mandarin faster, to have the one-on-one interaction with the teachers that they will be needing for their advancement in language learning. During the afternoon, the students have two choices: with the first one, students get to volunteer in an NGO where they can teach English to children belonging to disadvantaged backgrounds or minority groups.

Alternatively, they can choose to have language exchange sessions with a Chinese peer, which will provide the perfect opportunity for students to learn, discuss and understand Chinese language, culture and the home base as well. The evenings are free for students to explore the Kunming on their own and have a personal understanding of the nuances of the city. During the weekends, for the China only programs, students will indulge in the adventurous China travel to Lijiang, Shangri-la, Dali and Weishan as well as to busy, rapidly progressing major metropolises of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. The diversity of locations will let the students have an all around experience of how China functions as a whole.

Throughout the length of the programs, Minds Abroad will provide complete on-site support and will see to all arrangements like meals, accommodation, logistics and internal travel. The safety of every student will be taken care of by experienced managers who will be closely supervising every step of the program. The Summer Study+Travel programs are at the heart of Minds Abroad’s quest to provide students with a world class study abroad experience.
