Based in Kunming, China, this three-week, intensive course will help you quickly develop and master your Chinese language skills. SIT will conduct placement tests to identify your language level at the start of the program. Taught by native language instructors who have completed ACTFL OPI training and have more than 12 years of experience teaching Chinese language to foreign students, this course will use oral proficiency-based methods and interactive language teaching techniques to help you build your speaking, comprehension, reading, and writing skills.
While in-country you will participate in a language pledge to fully immerse yourself in the Chinese language and culture. Your formal language instruction will include opportunities to practice conversing with native speakers through on-campus activities with Chinese students, everyday community interactions, and site visits.
SIT is also offering a supplementary online Chinese Language course during the fall semester.
