Overall Experience
I learned that sometimes you just had to live in the moment. While abroad there are only so many things you can worry about; rather than worry just live in the moment of being abroad. It was worthwhile when I finally let go of things I couldn't control. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

Lot of great real world experience. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I learned accountability, and the importance of the quality of resources someone has access to. Because my professors provided ample resources, I was able to determine solutions to challenges independently. I also was able to do so faster than if I had relied on my own understanding. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

About

As China's capital, Beijing is a large and vibrant city particularly marked by rapid economic growth. The city itself has grown tremendously and visitors and residents alike remark at its constant state of change and the contrast between the modern and the ancient.  It is also the center of Chinese cultural “action,” and—since it is the capital—a place where politics is central.

Capital Normal University (CNU) is a national university that has hosted CET programs since 1982. CNU is well-known as one of the best teacher’s colleges in the city, and as such has a broad range of disciplines, including the social sciences and linguistics. With its central location and some of the most impressive facilities in the city, CNU offers an ideal home for students eager to explore Beijing.
