As most of us who endured the COVID-19 lockdown in China know, we can’t leave for the moment – or won’t be allowed back in. Some of us don’t mind waiting it out, until the rest of the world gets better, but many of us have itchy feat – and are dying to explore!

As we’re already in China, this is the perfect chance to explore the places you’ve been talking about. It’s also a good chance to improve your Chinese – there’s no time like the present.

Yangshuo, Guangxi, China

Omeida Chinese Academy is in stunning Yangshuo 阳朔, a popular tourist county and city near Guilin, Guangxi. You’ll know it from postcards, or pictures – it’s a tiny city surrounded by karst mountains, winding rivers and beautiful scenery. It serves as a fantastic base camp for further exploration.

About Omeida Chinese Academy

Omeida Academy prides itself on offering high quality, tailored Chinese courses amidst China’s most beautiful scenery. Foreign students at the Chinese language school can learn how to speak Chinese while exploring Yangshuo’s breathtaking mountains and rivers. Their Chinese courses have small class sizes, or private classes, and the experienced Mandarin teachers make sure all learners reach their goals.

Omeida’s Courses

Intensive Course

Whilst we all learn at different paces, the Intensive Course is more geared towards fast-paced learning and at whatever level you are at. Intensive Course will help you learn faster by providing a full day of classes and a variety of learning activities.


Standard Course

This is the ‘recommended’ option as most students here are enrolled in. It is a balanced half-day of classes and free time. You can hit the gym after class, explore Yangshuo, or take a guilt-free afternoon nap and still have plenty of time to study or socialize.

Cultural Class: Chinese painting


Part-time Course

If you already have a lot on your plate and prefer a much more casual pace of learning, but still would like to keep your Chinese language skills intact, then enrolling in the Part-time Course might be the most suitable option for you.

HSK Prep

The HSK is the main standardized test of Chinese language proficiency used in China for foreigners, and has many advantages.

– If seeking work opportunities, this certifies your Chinese language skills, which many Chinese companies have begun requesting a Chinese proficiency certificate when hiring foreign employees.

– If you are seeking entry to a Chinese university, this certification will fulfill admissions requirements.

– Eases applying for a work visa in China.

(One-on-one) Private Course

Let us know if you are interested in taking one-on-one lessons, and we can chat more about schedules that work for you.

Once enrolled, you can always change the course afterwards, so no worries if you are indecisive now.  This school is completely catered to your preferences.

Heck, don’t like being in a classroom and prefer to have class at a café, in a park, or even next to YuLong River? As we have small class sizes, this can be done!


Language Partner Program

We understand that learning a language takes more than studying and reciting from books. To us, social life and real-life interactions are important in fully grasping a language, so we have partnered with our English Academy to host a Language Partner Program. You can choose to have a native Chinese partner to help you practice Chinese outside of the classroom, in settings like eating out, or socializing with locals. This program is highly recommended because oral practice is crucial in retaining a language as well as building a steady momentum in learning. It is also free and at will.


Rather Teach

We are currently welcoming qualified English teachers as well to our English Academy. Please contact us if you are interested in teaching.

Tuition Fees

It depends on your course choice and duration, so chat to Elaine the Course Consultant who will explain the fees. Omeida also offer a Volunteer Exchange opportunity to lessen tuition fees, accommodations, and meals.

This is pretty much spending your choice of an hour or two in English conversation with students of the English Academy.  Different from the Language Partner Program. Simple from your end, but beneficial to your study budget, plus mutually rewarding to you and the English students

Spend a summer improving your Chinese, and your employment prospects, in one of China’s most beautiful places.

Have we managed to persuade you to pack your bags and leave for Yangshuo? And if packing up is too much of a chore, they also offer Online Classes.
