Setting Description:
Beijing is big; in its politics, its population, its culture, its acreage, its projects, and its reach. It is the great city of Khanbaliq, written about by Marco Polo, located along the upper tip of the North China Plain. From Beijing, dynasties have ruled over nations thousands of miles away in every direction. To live and study in Beijing is to understand a culture and society whose history extends back into ancient times, flourishing a millennium before Hannibal sacked Rome, Charlemagne united France, or Jesus preached to crowds in the streets of Jerusalem. To comprehend Beijing is to witness 1.3 billion people on the cusp of international power, welcoming change with open arms while still cognizant of their illustrious past. To study Mandarin in Beijing is to study Chinese in the true home of the language that unites a billion people. It is the home of the Chinese culture and an opportunity to study abroad in a city which will allow you complete immersion in the language. Beijinger
