September 23, 2011 – Beijing – After opening a second branch in Beijing in January 2011, Hutong School aims to welcome new students in Shanghai before the end of the year. Demand for Chinese language courses and internship programs in China continues to soar. Over the course of 2011 Hutong School has witnessed triple-digit growth and will continue to expand its network of branches to keep up with demand.
