Attend this information session to learn more about Columbia’s two Summer Chinese Language Programs in Beijing! Summer Language Program: This nine-week program immerses students in one of the world's most dynamic cities and offers four levels of intensive Chinese language studies from beginner through fourth year. Students complete the equivalent of one year of Chinese at Columbia. Group excursions in and around Beijing, the program base at Peking University and a week-long travel break give students insight into Chinese society and lifestyle. Summer Business Chinese Program: This nine-week program begins with intensive, personalized instruction in Chinese language classes that emphasize the specialized vocabulary, jargon, linguistic styles, and appropriate behaviors used in a professional setting. During the final weeks of the program, students participate in a field project and are placed with local or multinational companies, giving them an invaluable opportunity to apply their formal learning of business Chinese in context.
