[color=blue][Moderator’s note: Currently it is only possible to legally get a visa for studying Chinese through a government approved school. For the best resource to find out which schools you can get a visa for, please consult the New official list of approved language schools from MOE topic in Learning Chinese. Discussions about which schools are government approved should be made in that topic. Any other more general questions about student visas should continue to be posted in Visa & Residency Issues.][/color]
Is there any restriction as of which Chinese schools are good enough to be able to extend one’s visa? I have a friend coming over from German, she plans to stay 4 months. Is there a better visa option besides Chinese classes?
