So I spent the last two months studying Chinese at Middlebury College in Vermont. For those who haven't heard of Middlebury, it's a relatively well known language school that claims to be able to fairly substantially improve language skills in a short period of time. Having completed the course, I am not sure. If you want more info on that you can PM me.
While studying here, however, I was fortunate enough to meet some pretty good teachers. One of them is the founder of a Chinese language school for foreigners in Tianjin. After studying under this teacher, who has also taught at PIB (Princton) and ACC (Beijing), and talking with other students who studied with other teachers from this school, I thought I should do them a favor and announce their existence to the ChinesePod world.
The school is called New Century Language and Culture Center. It is an incredibly cheap way to learn Chinese compared to the other big name schools like PIB, ACC, CET etc.

I promise I am not getting any sort of compensation for this endoresment. I was greatly impressed with the teachers and with the pricing of the program and wished that I had known about this school earlier.
