Internship in China
China’s internship and job opportunities make it one of the most attractive countries for students and recent graduates. Whether in Beijing or Shanghai, or other less known but equally interesting metropolises, large corporations and national companies are growing exponentially.
Getting an experience through an internship in China will then open many opportunities for you later in the Asian market and even in Europe where your flexibility and openness will be rewarded!
Language stays in China are growing more and more thanks to the rising appeal of students for learning Mandarin. While English proficiency is becoming a norm rather than an asset, young people are turning to more exotic language learning to stand out in their studies or in the job market.
Learning Mandarin in China through a language course is certainly one of the best ways to develop rare and valued language skills!
