About

Explore traditional and ancient sites in central and northern China on this high school summer abroad program as you travel from the bustling city of Beijing to the grasslands of Inner Mongolia. Learn or expand upon your Chinese language skills through formal language classes and conversations with Chinese people you meet throughout the program. Experience contrasting Chinese-speaking Han communities, particularly during the program’s two very different homestays. Attend performances of Chinese folk music and acrobatics, buy fresh food in local markets, and prepare a Chinese meal. Learn even more about China through close interaction with Chinese peers. The program begins in China’s capital city, Beijing, where you will immediately begin deepening your understanding of China’s history through visits to important cultural and historical sites such as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall. Travel to Inner Mongolia, where you’ll meet herdsmen, enjoy Mongolian food, and learn about Mongolian culture. Your China Experiment continues in the city of Chengde, where you will have Chinese lessons and a weeklong homestay. Your group will then be joined by Chinese high school students for part of the program. Gain new and entirely different perspectives on daily life in China during your stay in the Han rural village Buyang-zhuang, accompanied by your Chinese peers. Hike up nearby mountains and participate in farming activities such as plowing. Continue on to the historic city of Qufu, the hometown of Confucius, before saying goodbye to your new Chinese friends. The program concludes with three days of exploration and reflection in Shanghai, where you will visit a number of important sites such as Yuyuan Garden, Old City, Longhua Temple, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Nanjing Road, or The Bund.
