Overall Experience
Tons of language improvement and self reliance skills. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CET Kunming
I learned that it's not always what you can see that's the best part of an experience. I found myself being a better student after this program because I found my limit. I could push my self much more than I have been. It was absolutely a worthwhile experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat. - Oberlin College View Entire Review
Kunming really lended itself to a youthful spirit, and compelled me to reflect on all of the opportunity I have been given in my life.

About

Looking to improve your Chinese by leaps and bounds while studying in the breathtaking "City of Eternal Spring"? CET Kunming students undertake a full-time Chinese language pledge and cover an entire year of university-level Chinese in 9 weeks. Outside the classroom—with the language pledge still in place—excursions give an inside look at issues particular to the Yunnan region, such as environmental conservation efforts and ethnic minorities. And to round your experience, you'll live with a local roommate to bring language and culture immersion into your home life. This program is open to students with at least 2 semesters of previous Chinese study.
