Program Description:

About Harbin
Harbin is the place to advance your Chinese. Period. The local accent is as standard as it gets, and there’s hardly any local dialect. This means that unlike other cities in China, the Chinese you hear on the streets mirrors what you learn in class. English-speaking foreigners are few, so Chinese is the lingua franca. The result? Immersion is inevitable and progress guaranteed.

Living with a local roommate is about more than just sharing a room. Your roommate can show you where to get the best Harbin bread and sausage, how to take the subway to the Hei Da book market, and the best spots for hiking in the mountains. You’ll learn new vocabulary every day just by chatting about your life stories. What will you do with your roommate?

As an intermediate or advanced learner, you’re ready to start steering your language skills towards an area that interests you. In this program, you design an independent study—a one-on-one Chinese language class about a topic of your choice. Sino-Russian relations? Urban development? China’s environment? You can study it in your one-on-one. Prerequisite of 4 Semesters of Chinese
