The ACC Intensive Language & Culture Program in Beijing is a Chinese language program administered by Hamilton College and hosted by Minzu University of China (MUC) in Beijing. We offer students the opportunity to improve their Chinese language skills and cultural fluency during fall, spring, or summer terms. The curriculum, designed and supervised by experienced American college professors, focuses on studying the Chinese language through individualized instruction and a high level of participation and interaction. Students pledge to speak only Chinese, and professors and instructors hold them to the pledge. Minzu University of China is one of the best-known institutions for teaching Chinese as a foreign language in China. It was one of the first universities in China to enroll international students, and prides itself on its ethnic diversity. It is the only university in China where all of the country’s 56 ethnic groups are represented in its faculty and student body. Your time with us promises to be richly rewarding.
