Each day, you will attend at least three interactive sessions
conducted entirely in Chinese, where you'll practice conversational skills.
You'll also attend one daily lecture taught in English. This lecture gives you
the chance to learn about how the
language works and what sorts of challenges you are likely to encounter in your
studies. You'll also discuss aspects of contemporary Chinese culture and
strategies for studying and learning.
This rigorous but rewarding schedule is the foundation of FALCON's approach. Despite the demands, students' energy and spirits remain high bolstered by rapid progress and the strong camaraderie that develops among the group.
