Beijing, China: Study Center at Peking University

Increased Peer Tutor Hours

CIEE students on the Advanced Chinese Studies program, Intensive Chinese Language program and Summer Intensive Chinese Language program at Peking University (PKU) are required to meet for a minimum of three hours per week for one-on-one sessions with their Chinese language tutor, and additional hours are available upon request by the student. The CIEE Peer Language Tutor program at PKU is a unique hallmark of these programs that help ensure our students’ linguistic and cultural fluency progresses throughout the program. These tutorials provide students extra conversation practice in Mandarin and guidance with homework assignments, while giving students an opportunity to befriend and be a part of the lives of their Chinese peers. Past students have stated that their peer tutors were one of the favorite aspects of the CIEE program.
