Chinese students coached for study abroad

Private companies offer courses in China to prepare country's young people for overseas study.

    A generation of Chinese children are preparing to do something many of their parents could never have dreamed of - studying overseas.

    As the mainland's policy to the rest of the world continues to change, many parents send their children to attend courses held by private companies preparing youths for life and studies outside China.
