CET Academic Programs: Harbin – Intensive Chinese Language

Chinese is the most widely used language in the world and there’s no better way to learn it than immersion.

This week’s COOL PROGRAM OF THE WEEK makes each student pledge to speak only Chinese while on the program, which is why we think it’s cool.

Long considered CET’s “gem”, the Harbin program attracts students who are up to the challenge of true immersion into an environment with few English-speaking foreigners. Students abide by a full-time language pledge and explore Harbin, a location chosen for its standard Mandarin, with Chinese roommates. The curriculum, perfect for students with research interests, includes one-on-two drill classes, small group electives and student-designed independent study classes–a student favorite.
