Konall Culture Exchange (KCE):
Konall Culture Exchange (KCE) offers fully-accredited Mandarin Chinese language and culture programs that are available in summer and year-round to students from around the world. Our school is located in Shijiazhuang which is the capital and largest city of North China's Hebei Province. Only 2 hours by train south of Beijing, Shijiazhuang is an ideal place for to learn Mandarin due to the undiluted culture and language environment that is the result of a lack of foreign influence. If you are serious about learning Mandarin Chinese in a true immersion environment, KCE is the school for you!
- We keep our classes small and our students often comment that they love the family atmosphere around campus.
- We provide you with the best Mandarin instruction available from our hand-picked and fully certified instructors, and we go out of our way to ensure that you personally have the richest experience possible.
- More than 30% of our students come to us from other programs in China because they just weren't learning anything at the "party" schools in Bejing and Shanghai. At KCE, all of our students are serious about learning Mandarin.
- Over one quarter of our students are attending or have graduated from top 10 ranked schools in the US and EU, and many of our graduates have gone on to start their own businesses in China.
KCE specialize in intensive 1-to-1 Mandarin language and Chinese culture programs geared towards serious learners who want to see real progress.
We would love to design a custom program for you that meets your goals for studying in China for any start date, accommodation package, or length of stay.

The two main reasons for choosing KCE are the high quality of the teaching and the favourable Chinese-speaking environment both inside and outside of the school.
The teachers are organised and professional, tailoring their teaching to your specific preferences and needs, and both encouraging and forcing you to continually improve your language skills. The school also promotes a Chinese-speaking environment inside the premises, including at communal lunches and other events.
Shijiazhuang itself is a Mandarin-speaking city and the virtual absence of foreigners and English-speaking Chinese people means that you are forced to use your Chinese on a daily basis in practical situations.
I have been to KCE twice now, and many other students also return to update their skills, having found that they have benefited so much from KCE's environment and approach.

I found that since Konall is in a tier two Chinese city where very few people speak any other language than Mandarin Chinese that you are forced to use the Chinese you learn in class on a daily basis. This daily practical application of the language is very helpful when trying to learn the language.
I only spent a month at Konall in Shijiazhuang but it was a month very well spent. It greatly improved both my written and spoken Chinese.
My only regret is that I did not spend longer than a month there. I plan to go back some time in the future for another month to further improve my Chinese.
