This back-to-back program offers students the unique opportunity to discover Shanghai and improve their Chinese language skills for 8-weeks, giving them a chance to truly immerse themselves in Chinese culture for the summer.

Students participating in the back-to-back Intensive Chinese Language summer program will enroll in two 4-week summer sessions for 8-weeks of Chinese language learning. Students will take a full course load of Mandarin language courses which will include speaking, reading, writing, and listening components. In order to participate in the program you must have taken at least one semester of college-level Chinese language. A placement exam will be given prior to the program's final forms and payment deadline to ensure that you are placed in the language level that will make you most successful.

Students only participate on ISA excursions one time during their time in Shanghai.
