Intensive Chinese Language in Harbin

Playing chess

CET Harbin is for intermediate and advanced Chinese language learners who are ready to take a large leap towards near-native fluency. The curriculum gives students exceptional levels of individual instruction. The one-on-one is a student favorite—students work independently with a language instructor to study a topic of interest, such as Food Culture in China or Chinese Foreign Policy. A full-time language pledge keeps language learning going around the clock. This program is perfect for intermediate and advanced language learners who are ready for full immersion.
