In the last century Shanghai has experienced exponential growth from its origins as a colonial trading port to a bustling international metropolis and global financial hub. With a rapidly growing population, rising lifestyle expectations, and continuing industrial production, Shanghai serves as an ideal location for students wishing to immerse themselves in Chinese language and society.
The program center is located on the campus of Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE). The Intensive Chinese Language program requires 20 hours of full-immersion language instruction per week, a homestay, and a language pledge, so you make rapid gains in your language skills. A week-long field study trip outside of Shanghai will allow you to explore China’s social, economic, and geographic diversity.
