"In short, I absolutely loved the FALCON program.
Not only were the teachers incredibly knowledgeable and patient, but they understood
where difficulties lie when teaching a student who has never had any
exposure to an Asian language. They catered to our specific learning needs.
The curriculum is geared toward subjects that are relevant to Chinese
society today, and they are reinforced with fun, culturally relevant activities
like calligraphy class and tea hour. It is no doubt a lot of work, but the way the program is
structured drives you to keep working hard without overwhelming you too much.
I learned a ton, and I met some of my best friends. There was never a
dull moment! I would definitely recommend this program for anyone passionate
about learning Chinese or Japanese."- Melissa Lantzer, Summer 2011
