Harbin, China: Is this study abroad program for you? At CET Harbin, students take a step towards near-native fluency. They specialize their language skills through a one-on-one language course about a topic of their choosing. They target diction and error correction in a one-on-two drill course. They add breadth to their vocabulary through electives like business Chinese, Chinese newspaper and Chinese literature.
