Program Description
The Baylor in China program offers qualified undergraduate students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a completely Chinese-speaking environment, living and studying among native speakers while acquiring one year's worth of language study credit at the 200, 300, or 400-level in just five weeks. Every day, students receive five hours of language instruction from Baylor University faculty, which includes individual one-on-one sessions designed to help students improve their conversation and presentation skills. Students also further their language acquisition through cultural activities such as calligraphy and martial arts, and excursions to famous sites like the Great Wall, the Temple of Heaven, and Beijing Opera, as well as guest lectures and other events on Chinese culture, society, and history at Tsinghua University, the top leading university in China (China's MIT). Students keep on learning outside the classroom as well, whether they are dining out in a
neighborhood restaurant or playing a pickup game of basketball with Chinese and other international students at Tsinghua University, where students reside while in Beijing.

This educational summer program is designed to help students improve the knowledge of Chinese language and develop skills in speaking, reading, writing and understanding of the language. It will continue to introduce you basic Chinese grammar, vocabulary, usage, speaking and writing system.

The program will offer two courses for non-Chinese language students, one on contemporary Chinese society, the other on doing business in China. Both will be recognized as Baylor credit courses.

CHI 2310 Intermediate Chinese (Through this course, you will learn to convey basic ideas and conduct conversations in standard modern Chinese. We will focus on five lessons of Book III.)
