CIEE Beijing - Summer
As the capital of the world’s most populous nation, Beijing is at the center of much that happens in China. It is a city of 11 million people struggling to adapt as China emerges as a global player. As a political center, bureaucracy is widespread. Changes in Beijing have moved at an incredible rate, and the city continues to grow physically. However, Beijing also reflects China’s long and evolving history when different dynasties were based there and constructed some of the nations most well-known and culturally important sites such as the Great Wall and the Summer Palace.
Established in 1982, the CIEE summer language program at Peking University offers intermediate and advanced language students an opportunity to improve their fluency in spoken and written Mandarin Chinese, while gaining insight into life in China’s capital city.
