Our Mandarin language immersion tour in Guilin is located in one of the most of the most picturesque places in China. At its center are two lakes, Shanhu (Cedar) and Ronghu (Banyan), remaining from a medieval-era moat that once surrounded the city. Boats travel through these and other lakes via connected rivers. On Shanhu Lake’s shore, twin pagodas, the Sun and Moon, light up the sky at night. It’s these experiences plus homestays with local families that create an authentic, and immersive, language study program in China.
