And at least once a semester, your curriculum slows down for a theme-based week of language practice. These weeks have you practicing the Chinese you’ve learned as you interview locals and prepare an in-class presentation on your findings. Past themes have included China’s environmental issues, the Chinese hukou (household registration) system, traditions and modernization, and gender equality.
This program has been perfecting the art of language teaching since 1982. The teachers are dedicated, patient, and highly skilled. Word by word, phrase by phrase, they help you make the Chinese language your own. The best part? You get to see these wonderful teachers outside of class, too. On Fridays, each class heads out to lunch to celebrate the end of the week. It’s not long before your teacher feels like a friend…a friend who helps you learn to speak great Chinese.
