Princeton in Beijing has been an absolutely unforgettable experience. Everything from the learning material to the teachers have been stellar. I can confidently say that my Mandarin has improved a lot since I arrived in Beijing two months ago.”


"Everything here at PiB has really been fantastic. I especially like the Individual Sessions and Chinese Table opportunities to engage our professors on a more personal level. While difficult, I have enjoyed every aspect of PiB and have greatly improved my Chinese."
