Anyone who wants a career that involves China needs to spend time in Beijing, and being there for a summer is the way to do it. See the sites, absorb the history, follow the politics, improve your Chinese. Then, when you return to China after graduation, you’ll have your Beijing experience in your back pocket, and the entire country will be yours.
You’ll share a dorm room with a local roommate. The building is for CET students only, away from other foreign student housing…you won’t hear much English around you. For meals, take your pick of cafeterias or neighborhood restaurants.
