Review

If you want an authentic experience in modern China, you must go to Beijing. And if you want a study-abroad experience that combines a rigorous language program with a series of unforgettable cultural events, I can recommend no program more highly than CIEE’s Intensive Chinese Language (ICL) program at Peking University. My language skills and confidence grew exponentially as a result of the daily language classes. I also got to experience the real Beijing (and China) with excursions to places such as the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and the Temple of Heaven. There were many opportunities to try fantastic food (I recommend Peking duck or anything with eggplant) and cultural activities (like calligraphy). On the other hand, there was plenty of time and resources available to plan my own excursions and activities. I was also impressed by the CIEE staff at Peking University, who were always there to hear my questions and concerns, or offer advice and recommendations for restaurants and attractions. If you have the opportunity to study abroad at this specific program, you should definitely take it.

Would you recommend this program?
