BCA Dalian, China
Learn why Dalian is known as the North Pearl of China, the City of Romance and the City of Fashion and get to know your host city like a local with the expert guidance of the BCA Dalian Resident Director. Experience the rich cultural diversity of China as your RD takes you to other significant areas. Excursions vary by semester, but in the past have included an off-the-beaten path section of The Great Wall of China, the terra cotta warriors of Xi’an and Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, the inspiration for the mythical land in the film Avatar.
You have the chance to meet and befriend local students interested in improving their English and learning more about American culture through activities with the School of English Studies. You also have opportunities to join clubs, such as the travel club for outdoor enthusiasts, and participate in events on DLUFL’s lively campus. Students who are more independent also meet locals through daily tai chi practice in parks or other activities around the city. BCA’s monthly homestay program allows you to practice your Chinese and learn about life as a local.
