The Shanghai Chinese Studies summer program, hosted at Fudan University, offers eight weeks of Chinese language study at the first, second, third, and fourth-year levels in China’s largest and most vibrant city. Housing is provided in apartment-style student residences at the Tonghe International Mansion close to the Fudan campus. Language courses equivalent to a full year of University-level Chinese meet for 16-20 hours each week and emphasize grammar, oral comprehension, and speaking. Courses are augmented by a five-day educational trip to historic cities or to the countryside to experience village life and other cultural activities.
