About

In Beijing, skyscrapers compete for space with historic temples and crowded courtyard homes, while bicycles have given way to countless cars. Although Mandarin Chinese is spoken in some form by the majority of China’s population, the form of Chinese spoken in Beijing is considered the standard, making it an ideal location for learning correct pronunciation. Offering an ideal environment for acquiring and improving Chinese language skills, the IES Abroad Beijing summer program provides intensive beginner, intermediate, advanced intermediate, and advanced level Chinese language courses.

IES Abroad’s Beijing Summer study abroad program offers enrollment in IES Abroad courses, housing in student residence halls, regular meetings with local students as language and culture partners, and field trips in Beijing and throughout China; you will have the opportunity to meet Chinese and international students alike. Starting at the IES Abroad Center on the west campus of Beijing Foreign Studies University, you will gain a meaningful cultural experience and a deeper knowledge of what it means to be a citizen of the world.

Designed to help you acquire or improve Chinese language skills through intensive language instruction, an entire year of college-level Chinese is covered during this program. Small class sizes and one-on one instruction with Chinese language faculty make this program perfect for vastly improving your language skills. You will study at the IES Abroad Beijing Center, located on the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) campus, and follow a campus-wide language pledge to maximize language learning.
