CIEE Intensive Chinese Language
Looking for a rigorous, fully immersive language learning study abroad experience that pushes you to explore beyond the classroom? You’ve found it. The CIEE Intensive Chinese Studies program is designed to enable intermediate and advanced language students to increase their Mandarin proficiency while exploring Beijing’s role in the greater Chinese society.

Through intensive Mandarin language courses, area studies electives, weekly interactions with Chinese peer tutors, a homestay option, and group excursions you won’t simply study Chinese—you’ll live it.

Study abroad in Beijing and you will:logo
  • Choose from the largest selection of Chinese language electives in China—ideal for advanced and heritage language learners—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 Peking University peer tutors
  • Learn from CIEE staff trained in teaching Chinese as a second language and Chinese culture
  • Visit the Great Wall, Forbidden City, and Temple of Heaven, and areas away from Beijing such as Xi’an or Hangzhou
  • Live with a Chinese host family or in a dormitory with other international students
  • Participate in smaller, topic-oriented cultural activities and lectures that provide meaning to what you learn in the classroom and give you additional tools to understand your experience of living in another culture\
