We offer free language exchange to supplement your language training by having regular conversations with a native speaker. Language exchange is a method of language learning based on mutual language practicing by learning partners who are speakers of different languages. A language exchange complements other forms of learning such as classroom, cultural immersion and multimedia, because you get to practice all that you have learned with native speakers in a safe and supportive environment. If you are learning Chinese at our school, there is every opportunity to enhance it with our language exchange in Shanghai. Learning in our classrooms and being immersed in a Mandarin speaking city like Shanghai will undoubtedly do a lot to improve students' language skills. However, for a lot of students, a one-on-one exchange of Chinese for English with local students can do a lot to supplement their language learning while they are studying with us. There is simply no better way to practice ones listening and speaking skills than by having regular conversations with a native speaker.
Another benefit of our language exchange is that students have the opportunity to meet their Chinese peers. What better way to make a new friend than working together to improve each one’s skills in a foreign language? In addition to improving their Chinese skills, students who choose to participate in our language exchange will get a personal in-depth education on Chinese culture and Shanghai’s local customs. But most importantly, having a language partner provides students with a fantastic opportunity to make a friend who can open up a whole new set of possibilities for them. Having friends in the local community is not only the best way to improve one’s language skills but also the best way to ensure that you have a fun time while you are studying Chinese in Shanghai.
In many ways, language exchange is at the center of what Shanghai Chinese Test Center
is all about. We feel that classroom learning should not be the entire focus of study abroad. The opportunity to get out in the community, make new friends, and get a feel for what Chinese society is really like is what students must take advantage of if they are to make the most of their study abroad experience. For these reasons, we feel that language exchange is a perfect gateway to China for our international students.

There are different types of visas with different length of stay and number of entries. The length of stay should be determined by the length of the internship or Chinese classes you are applying for. In some countries, the Chinese Embassy might refuse to issue long term (30 days+) visas. In such a case, you should apply for the longest possible length of stay and extend the visa in China if you wish to stay longer. If you are planning to stay in China for less than 3 months, we recommend you to apply for the L visa (tourist visa). L Visas are valid for 30 to 90 days.If you plan to stay for longer than 3 months, it is recommended that you would apply for the F visa (business visa).
The extension of F and L visa is a rather simple and inexpensive process, which the Shanghai Chinese Test Center
will arrange for you when necessary. We further recommend that all applicants apply for single entry visas. The reason is that the length of stay upon each entry with a multiple entry visa may be limited to 30 days, while a single entry visa may allow for a longer stay. If you would like to leave China for a short time during your internship (for the purpose of a holiday, for example), a re-entry visa can easily be requested at the Shanghai Entry and Exit Administration Bureau before you leave China.
China’s visa policy is subject to change; please contact us before you come to China to explore your options if your visa doesn’t cover the length of your stay. Shanghai Chinese Test Center
can also present you with a certificate of admission to supplement your documentation. We can offer you some visa services to extend your visa if necessary. If you can present us with all of the relevant materials,Shanghai Chinese Test Center
can help you with your application for a visa or visa extension. In the case of visa extension, you will need to prepare your passport, the registration paper from a local police station and your medical report. Chinese visa regulations may vary according to the location of the embassy and the applicant’s nationality. Although we try to keep this page up to date, regulations may change unexpectedly. We recommend that you consult the Chinese Embassy in your country before applying for a visa.
