Bridge to China will not be able to hold 2018 fall semester classes due to a teacher shortage.    We apologize for the late notice and are hopeful we can hold classes in our Winter/Spring 2019 term.    

We have been fortunate to have teachers for our 10 years in operation and hope this is just a temporary situation.   We will keep you updated by email along with updates on our Facebook and Website.   
Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions.    Thank you as always for your support of Bridge to China.
