CIEE Accelerated Chinese Language in Shanghai

Offered through CIEE, the Accelerated Chinese Language in Shanghai program is an approved UW affiliate program. This program is designed to provide you with a strong foundation in Chinese language and a deeper understanding of China today through intensive Chinese language coursework and cultural immersion, complemented by a wide selection of area studies courses in various disciplines.

The program is open to students with all levels of language skill, from students with no experience to those with superior level proficiency, although it is not for native Chinese speakers. You will take two accelerated courses that focus on rapid language acquisition and are designed to move students ahead at least two levels in all four Chinese language skills. You also have the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to understand the environment outside through independent fieldwork and volunteer opportunities.

You will be working closely with both IAP and CIEE on this program. You can access the program's main information page through the CIEE website to learn more about the academics, housing, excursions and activities, and location.
