ICLP trains students to oral and written fluency in as short a time as possible through rigorous instruction and intensive coursework. The results are often startling. Students who come to ICLP with only a basic level of Chinese ability are often able to speak and read fluently after only one year of instruction.

The Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies (IUP), formerly known as the 'Stanford Center,' is now in its 10th year in Beijing on the campus of Tsinghua University. IUP was originally established in Taipei, Taiwan in 1963 and in 1997 relocated to its current site in Beijing.
IUP is the premier U.S.-sponsored Chinese language program intended for students who aspire to truly advanced competence, whether they be undergraduates, graduates, professionals, or established scholars.
The USC in Shanghai & Beijing Program is offered during the summer semester. This program gives students the opportunity to improve their language skills, learn about China's culture and history, and gain valuable international experience by living in two of the world's most rapidly progressing cities. Students complete one level of Mandarin during the four-week program or two levels of Mandarin during the eight-week program. All students receive USC course credit and can seamlessly transition to the next level of Chinese upon their return to USC.
