Learning Chinese in Beijing or Shanghai
Beijing or Shanghai? How to choose a city to learn Chinese in China?
Dec, 2016



While it is possible to experience the cultural diversity and grandeur by studying almost anywhere in China, some popular destinations might maximize your experience by offering top teaching quality and more possibilities to enjoy beauty, history and lifestyle or career and business opportunities. Shanghai, Beijing have traditionally remained the top chosen cities which attract more than 70% of all the foreign learners coming to China. If traditional culture is your thing, you might consider more traditional cities like Xi’an and Nanjing where there are fewer foreigners. If you have a craving for natural beauty and travelling, picturesque Hangzhou, Guilin and Kunming would definitely be good choices. Mandarinrocks has Mandarin schools in both Shanghai and Beijing, the two dominant cities of language students’ choice.

Who should go to Shanghai to learn Chinese?
Shanghai is the “New York” of China, a city for people who love cities - they love the pace, the intensity, the density, the constant feeling of motion and the sensory overload. If you like Shanghai, it's because you're attuned into this frenetic vibe that it exudes - the swirl of stores and restaurants and people that collide on every corner you can see.

Who should go to Beijing to learn Chinese?
Beijing is the political and cultural capital of China, one of the country’s true ancient cities. Less westernized compared with Shanghai, Beijing is more like a typical Chinese city - long history, traditional architectures, and slower pace of live, beautiful landscape.

Conclusion:
Shanghai is a more modern, western city while Beijing is more conservative, more traditional. Both cities are excellent choices to learn Chinese and experience life in China. The choice all depends on your personality.
