The CET Summer Intensive Language in Kunming is an innovative program open to intermediate and advanced Chinese students and is offered for eight weeks during the summer. Designed for graduates, professionals, and serious undergraduates, it offers a unique curriculum unlike any other on the Chinese mainland. The program is based at CET's center at Yunnan University, which houses the C.V. Starr-Middlebury School in Kunming throughout the academic year.
The curriculum focuses on efficient language acquisition. Grammar and drill classes emphasize general competence in the four basic skill areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Small group classes offer students the chance to focus on specific areas of linguistic interest such as law, newspaper, literature or history.
Activities and trips encourage students to venture "out the door" and practice their Chinese skills in daily life. Each week, staff arranges excursions to places that would normally be difficult for students to visit on their own. For example, students might visit a local business or tour a small village outside of Kunming.
Students live in double rooms with Chinese students recruited by CET. Rooms have private bathrooms and come equipped with air conditioning, phone lines and highspeed internet connections.
