Course description:  This 3-week intensive Chinese course will offer students an immersion environment for improving their listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Mandarin Chinese. You will have local students as buddies for extra class activities on and off campus. Afternoon Chinese culture classes include taiqi, dumpling making, paper cutting, and others. 

You will also visit local families to experience local life. The program also offers a rare first-hand opportunity to learn about the current political, social, and economic dynamics that are impacting Chinese culture and institutions. Students will be able to better understand the challenges and opportunities that exist in China today, especially those about its business environment, financial markets and institutions, and economic development.

In Suzhou, students will visit a Silk Museum and learn about the importance of the Silk Road to commerce and trade. Most of the time, students will stay in Shanghai, a major financial center of Asia, where they will explore the investment environment and Chinese culture. Going to the old city and marketplace will give students the opportunity to learn more about the dynamics of a rising economic system. In addition, students will have opportunities to involve in various activities with Chinese students, communicate and exchange ideas with Chinese scholars at the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology.
