CET-Beijing is the only approved program in Beijing where you have the opportunity to live with a local Chinese roommate. In addition to the small group, drill, one-on-one classes, and full-time language pledge typical to intensive Chinese language programs, CET-Beijing offers many extracurricular classes, activities, and trips. Compared to programs such as HBA or PIB, CET-Beijing students come from a larger number of universities and may be a good fit for Light Fellows looking to escape the “Yale bubble”.  All classes and dorm rooms are in a recently renovated facility on Capital Normal University's campus.

This could be a great fit for students who want to balance ample opportunities for unscripted, informal conversation practice outside of the formal classroom setting.

Program Application Notes:

  • CET accepts the Light Fellowship Language Evaluation as a substitute for one letter of recommendation from a language instructor. You do not need to send a recommendation request.
