This means that CET has the freedom to recruit the best of the best. In Beijing, CET attracts faculty from institutions around the city—Beijing University, Beijing Language & Culture University, Beijing Normal University. Faculty have graduate degrees in Chinese Language or Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language. Almost all full-time instructors have taught in the United States or at other study abroad programs of similar caliber.
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.
Programming staff help you get the most out of the program. They handle housing, excursions, and day-to-day logistics, and are trained in emergency prevention and management. Got an idea for an activity? Need to see a doctor? Just want someone to talk to? Programming staff are your best resource.
