Summer 2024 Program

Summer 2024 Announcement

For Summer 2024, the Princeton in Beijing program makes its highly anticipated return to Beijing!

The Summer 2024 program will be held on the campus of Beijing Normal University from June 24 (students arrive June 21) to August 16, 2024. The eight-week program delivers a high-quality, intensive Chinese language learning experience that emphasizes accurate pronunciation and grammar, qualities necessary for genuine fluency, as well as cultural literacy, needed for clear and meaningful communication. The faculty from Princeton brings to this effort more than three decades of leadership in pioneering total immersion, summer Chinese language programs.

The “total immersion” approach includes: a student pledge to speak no language other than Mandarin Chinese for the entirety of the program, daily individual tutorial sessions, constant contact with faculty through Chinese Table meals, weekend excursions, extracurricular activities, and in daily campus life and life in the capital city.
