Program Description:

Intensive Chinese Language in Harbin

Harbin students
At CET Harbin, students take a step towards near-native fluency. They specialize their language skills through a one-on-one language course about a topic of their choosing. They target diction and error correction in a one-on-two drill course. They add breadth to their vocabulary through electives like business Chinese, Chinese newspaper and Chinese literature. A full-time language pledge ensures that Chinese is the sole means of communication for the entire term. This program is perfect for intermediate and advanced language learners who are ready for full immersion. Spring semester students can up the ante by tacking January Term in Beijing onto their study abroad plans.
