Harbin Mandarin School?

Has anyone had experience with the Harbin Mandarin School?

I want to spend about two weeks taking language classes (intermediate level) in Harbin--too short a time to sign up for a university class (also, not my preference), but this is the only private language school I could find online. I could also hire a private teachers, but I like the idea of a school that includes both apartment and lessons in one package.

Yes, that's the only school I see online too. Did you find other private school? I want to be there for 1 year.

Yes! Here's the one I ended up attending: http://www.bincai.org/english/

Bincai College is near HIT, a good location with lots of students. I had private teachers (more expensive), but the classes are affordable, and small enough to work well. The teachers I had were great. The college also arranged a room for me at a hotel--but, they also have a student dormitory, I think.

Bincai doesn't have a lot of English-speakers-learning-Chinese. Most students were learning English, or Japanese, or Korean. But that's actually good...there was not much English going on, certainly the classes and private lessons were entirely in Chinese. I hope you enjoy Harbin!
