See What Our Alumni Have to Say...

"I would describe my study abroad to other students as being very unique and exciting. I have encountered a whole new culture in an unknown continent and managed to feel like China was like a second home after a few months there. I met local people that taught me and showed me things that I will never forget about. I also made friends from all around the world. All in all, the experience taught me a lot about the country, but also about myself. It was definitiely a life changing experience. I would say it was different from other providers because it includes highlight trips all along the semester. I also felt the connection between the students and the staff was quite unique." 

Amandine T., Fudan University, Spring 2014

"It was a great opportunity and a great program. When we got on the ground it was a smooth, organized transition into our universities. The living arrangements were very nice and it freed up a lot of time and effort that could be spent on school, exploring Shanghai, and meeting new people. Other students I talked to occasionally voiced concerns and stress regarding issues that TEAN basically put on autopilot for us. I got many jealous stares." 

Devon M., Fudan University, Fall 2013

"Going to China was one of the best choices I had ever made. While I had a limited knowledge of Chinese, TEAN really did their best in terms of assuring I had a fantastic experience. I was nervous at first to have a Chinese roommate because I was afraid there would be a language barrier or that they wouldn't get along with me, however, this was not the case. The way that TEAN facilitates all of your needs from within the country is astonishing. If I ever had a problem, I was able to utilize my Chinese roommates knowledge of the language and the culture to help in any given situation.

The staff in the country also helped considerably. TEAN goes above and beyond when accommodating students in the apartments. They have Western amenities as well as some Chinese culture within them. All of the apartments were conveniently located near a subway stop and near campus. My study abroad changed me for the better and, thanks to TEAN, I am now pursuing a minor in Chinese and I am looking to China for future employment opportunities. I highly recommend TEAN as the program of choice for those who wish to study abroad. I was friends with a few of their competitors students and TEAN is the Cadillac of the Chinese study abroad programs."

Devon K., Fudan University, Fall 2013

Shanghai is a truly wonderful city that bridges a fast paced global economy with over a thousand years of culture and tradition. TEAN did an amazing job managing the process of getting settled into our new home, and offered support every step of the way. This provided the perfect staging ground to take advantage of the vibrant and unique culture China offers. Being immersed in such a contrasting culture offers plenty of adventures and allows you to learn and experience things through a fresh, exciting perspective.
