Study Chinese in Hong Kong
Until retrocession to the mainland, Hong Kong was one of the last non-Mandarin strongholds of the Chinese World and until a few years ago Mandarin-speaking Chinese tourists found Hong Kong nearly un-navigable. Since
mainland rule arrived in 1997, Mandarin is increasingly common and Hong Kong is becoming an increasingly attractive base for studying the language. The spectacular scenery, stunning modern landscape, cheap restaurants, and excellent transportation
system are all just extras.
A typical Mandarin program is offered by the Center for Study Abroad (CSA), which runs a network of language programs around the world. Classes—of three hours a day, limited to seven students—start
more or less year-round. Like most other study-abroad programs, CSA can help arrange a variety of accommodations including homestay.
