CIEE Intensive Chinese Language + Culture Program in Nanjing, China
Take your Mandarin skills to the next level, and get an authentic Chinese experience –without all the tourists – in Nanjing! We’ll give you the tools and knowledge to find the right words and turns of phrase in Mandarin. The program features small class sizes, group excursions, a weeklong field trip, and weekly sessions with peer tutors. You’ll live with a Chinese roommate or host family, so you’ll be completely immersed in the language, the place, and the culture.

Improve your Mandarin through intensive language training in small classes, a peer tutor program, and by living with a Chinese roommate or host family
Learn about contemporary China through a core course and work on a social research project conducted in English
