With 22 million Chinese-speaking people to share the city with, Beijing is the place to give your Mandarin skills a major boost this summer. With premier instruction, tutoring, homestay, travel, and awe-inspiring icons like the Great Wall and Forbidden City, you’ll pack a year’s worth of learning into one unforgettable summer.
CIEE’s Intensive Chinese Language program is designed to help students improve fluency in spoken and written Mandarin Chinese through intensive language training. Students can also take one or two courses instructed in English to enrich their understanding of China’s capital city. Students agree to speak Chinese to encourage language and cultural acquisition. In-class work is augmented with co-curricular visits to the city’s rich variety of cultural institutions and organizations relevant to the course offering.
Chinese language courses are taught by faculty from the Peking University School of Chinese as a Second Language. Electives are taught in English by CIEE faculty. Students receive a certificate of achievement from Peking University after completing the program.
