CIEE Summer Accelerated Chinese Language Program in Shanghai, China
Spend the summer advancing and applying your Mandarin language skills in one of the most dynamic, rapidly developing cities on earth. Whether you’re a first year or fifth year student of the language, you’ll have access to intensive, daily Chinese coursework and one-on-one classes that address your individual needs.
Coupling that classwork with structured peer tutorials and language clinics, homestays with local families, cultural activities and volunteering opportunities, CIEE study abroad in Shanghai provides you with an exciting and truly immersive international experience.
Study abroad in Shanghai and you will:
Advance your Mandarin ahead one year on this Chinese language-only program through small and one-on-one classes
Live with a Chinese host family or Chinese roommate and immerse yourself in Chinese culture
Learn outside the classroom through volunteer opportunities, cultural activities, and a three-day field trip “off the tourist track” to practice Chinese in authentic situations
