Program Description:


CIEE Intensive Chinese Language Program in Beijing, China
Your intermediate or advanced proficiency will skyrocket while you explore Beijing’s role in Chinese society. Small, topic-oriented, cultural activities and lectures provide meaning to what you learn in the classroom and give you additional tools to successfully navigate living in another culture. Plus, you’ll take part in intensive Mandarin language courses, area studies electives, weekly interactions with Chinese peer tutors, a homestay option, and group excursions.

Study abroad in Beijing and you'll:

  • Choose from the largest selection of language electives in China at the prestigious Peking University
  • Improve your Mandarin with up to 20 hours of in-class language instruction per week and one-on-one tutorials with peer tutors
  • Learn from CIEE staff trained in teaching Chinese culture and Chinese as a second language
  • Visit the Great Wall, Forbidden City, and Temple of Heaven, and areas outside of Beijing
  • Live with a Chinese host family or in a dorm with other international students
