Course Format

Other than the few specifically-indicated Chinese language courses, all courses are taught in English, exactly as they would be in the United States, because that is the successful academic model we have adopted and transplanted to China.  There is no better preparation for Chinese students attending universities in the United States than to immerse themselves in our rigorous, intensive, 5-week program where English is the language spoken by every professor in the classroom.
 
There are five sessions for each course per week (Monday through Friday).  Therefore, over the duration of our 5 weeks of instruction, each class will meet 25 times.  Scientific research has established the effectiveness and efficiency of this concentrated method of instruction for maximum learning and long-term retention.
 
Each class session lasts 120 minutes, allowing for at least a 10 minute break between all classes.The total contact hours of each course will be 50 hours.
