Students who spend a summer or trimester in China with Choate Rosemary Hall make significant progress in their language study—whether they are a beginner or an advanced student. The Shanghai-based program also includes visits to museums, workshops on Chinese painting and calligraphy, and field trips to the Free Trade Zone and Academy of Science. Students will hold forums to discuss current issues with Chinese students from high schools and colleges. These activities will help students appreciate the profound transformations taking place in China and China’s role in the global economy. Students split their time between a dormitory and a host family, giving them the chance to bond with fellow study abroad students while immersing themselves in Chinese culture.
