This can be a great opportunity for Chinese students to practise their English, as all their education in India will be in English. Of course, they will come across many different Indian accents, but that is not necessarily such a bad thing. They will be in an environment where they will be forced to practise and improve their own English--if they wish to. However, the reality is that most such students (with a few exceptions) tend to stick together, avoiding the local students, speaking only in Chinese, playing online Chinese games, chatting in Chinese on QQ, watching Chinese movies,... in short, living in India exactly as they would live in China, and then complaining that they are not able to learn English or understand Indian English
Oh... sounds like a few ex-pat college communities I have seen in the United States. However, what about day to day needs, that force a person to interact with the community around them? Laundry, Take Out Food, etc. - you telling me the community is that isolated?
