Overall Experience
I seriously improved my Chinese just by living in China for the fall semester. Not only was I more independent and creative getting around, I did so in Chinese. Many students speak English, but in almost all social interactions off campus, Chinese is the "Lingua Franca". It was worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review

About

Shanghai (pop. 23,019,148) is China's largest city and financial capital. It is located on the central east coast of the country and enjoys moderate temperatures in the winter and warm summers.

Shanghai has been a market city for over 1,000 years and has been a city of global economic importance since the 19th Century. Shanghai's long history as an Asian trade hub has contributed to its distinct welcoming and open atmosphere, making it the ideal location for those who wish to study abroad in China, and learn more about Chinese language and culture.

Due to its financial success, Shanghai has some of the best shopping in China, with a wide range of shopping options from small shops to giant stores. Anyone who enjoys shopping will love Shanghai!
