Day-Long Learning

During the summer term on Cornell's campus, you'll be in class Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 4:30

Each day, you will attend three to four interactive sessions conducted entirely in Chinese, where you'll practice conversational skills.

In addition to this structured class time, you'll spend 1-3 hours per day on self-directed practice in Cornell's Language Resource Center. The center provides a large number of computers equipped with our in-house language software for interactive listening and speaking practice, and is open from early morning until late evening.

This rigorous but rewarding schedule is the foundation of IMPAC's approach. Despite the demands, students' energy and spirits remain high bolstered by rapid progress and the strong camaraderie that develops among the group.
