Students in this program will be immersed in Chinese language instruction for 16-18 weeks and can expect to earn approximately 12-semester credits for the Standard Chinese Language program (or up to 18-semester credits if they elect to pursue the Intensive Chinese option for an additional fee).

CHINESE LANGUAGE COURSE – FALL AND SPRING

These two tracks offer immersive and intensive Chinese language instruction for students at all levels, from complete beginners to more advanced language learners. The Intensive Chinese Language Track offers courses at a faster pace, intended for those who want to learn the most in the shortest period of time.

The instruction stresses the equal importance of listening, speaking, reading, and writing Chinese, in order to lay a solid foundation for students learning. Classes are generally no larger than 20 students and meet for 20 (Standard) or 29 (Intensive) hours per week. Both tracks focus on the improvement of listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, integrated with innovative teaching methodology, like games, activities, and multi-media.
