CET Beijing: Intensive Language

CET Beijing, in operation since 1982, has Chinese language learning down to a science. Intensive Chinese language classes are taught by outstanding, seasoned instructors. Chinese language excursions get you out the door and into the city. A full-time Chinese language pledge keeps language learning going around the clock. And Chinese roommates share every part of the experience. You'll make exceptional gains in your language skills over the course of the term. This program is open to all language levels, from beginners to heritage learners.

Your Chinese Will Improve by Leaps and Bounds.

  • A full load of intensive, integrated Chinese language classes that cover at least one year of Chinese in a term.
  • Full-time Chinese language pledge.
  • Chinese roommates.
  • No language prerequisite for the fall, spring and summer terms.
  • The four-week January Term is a perfect warm up to any spring China program. It is open to students with at least 3 previous semesters of Chinese.

Beijing Chinese Language Program
Intensive Chinese for All Students, Offered All Year Round

HeronThe goals of CET's Beijing Chinese Language program are twofold: rapid improvement of language skills and a solid understanding of contemporary Chinese society. Weekly themes integrate the intensive curriculum--a lecture class might introduce the "Chinese family"; family planning policies are debated during drill class; students interview a Chinese family for language practicum. A full-time language pledge and dorm rooms shared with local Chinese students round out this rigorous program.
