CET Kunming Summer Chinese Language Program
Himalayas to the west. Tropical rainforests to the south. This is China like you’ve never imagined it before. Kunming, the “City of Eternal Spring,” is perfect for nature-lovers and travelers seeking cultural (and culinary!) diversity. A summer in Kunming will transform your Chinese, but it will also prepare you for China’s large international cities…when you’re ready for them.
Students will take a full load of intermediate or advanced Chinese language classes, live with a Chinese roommate, attend meals and activities with their teachers, and uphold a full-time language pledge.
The program is based at Yunnan University in the cultural heart of Kunming. YNU’s lovely campus has everything you need—a library, sports facilities, stores, cafés. The campus area is also a public transportation hub, making it easy to explore downtown Kunming and beautiful Yunnan Province.
Celebrating the grand reopening of USC Pacific Asia Museum after a year of the seismic retrofit project, the museum will present an exhibit drawn from the museum’s extraordinary collection of over 2,700 costumes and textiles from China, Korea, Japan, India, the Himalayas and Southeast Asia.
