Please note CET Harbin has not run since the onset of COVID-19. This program will not run in Spring 2024, Summer 2024, or Fall 2024. 

This truly immersive program features instruction for intermediate to high advanced language levels and housing with a Chinese roommate. Full-time language pledge. The location in Harbin is an underappreciated asset with very few English speakers and fascinating local history. Specialized language learning through a self-designed one-on-one independent study is also unique to CET-Harbin.

This program would be a great fit for someone who is eager to learn more about life in a typical Chinese city. Less western presence and entertainment means CET-Harbin students tend to lead a more authentic Chinese lifestyle, well-guided by the carefully selected local roommates.
