Program Description:

CET Harbin

Harbin students
At CET Harbin, you'll take a step towards near-native fluency. You'll specialize in improving your language skills through a one-on-one language course about a topic of your choice. You'll target diction and error correction in a one-on-two drill course. You'll add breadth to your 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.
