The Chinese In-Country Summer School is a 3 week intensive language study tour to China from early December. The course is provided in conjunction with the Confucius Institute at the University of Adelaide and Shandong University, where the intensive Chinese language program is undertaken. Shandong University is one of China's leading universities. The course includes intensive studies in Mandarin Chinese, cultural activities and seminars, and visits to cultural and historical sites in Shandong and Beijing. It will greatly enhance students' linguistic abilities and their understanding of Chinese society and culture. The intensive language training consists of up to 25 hours per week of reading/grammar, oral/conversation and listening classes delivered by highly experienced staff at Shandong University's College of International Education. After-class exercises will be 3 hours per day. Students will have access to individual tutors from Shandong University's after-class tutoring scheme. Upon completion of the study tour in China students will be required to submit their academic transcript and graduation certificate from Shandong University and a 1,500 English words reflection paper on their experience in China. Students wishing to enrol in the Chinese In-Country Summer School must first register with the Confucius Institute at the University of Adelaide, and also see the staff at the Faculty of Arts office before their departure if they wish to have the course counted towards their major/minor in Chinese or Diploma of Languages (Chinese).
