Spring Intensive Chinese Language Program at Dongbei University of Finance and Economics, China

1 Description
  • Training in Chinese Language
    Native Chinese instructors specialized in teaching Chinese for foreigners will provide lessons at the International Institute of Chinese Language and Culture. Everyday on weekdays, “Intensive Chinese Reading for beginners” lessons (90 min.) and “Chinese Conversation” lessons (90 min.) will be provided. In total, forty-two hours of lessons that are equivalent to those given in two semesters will be provided.
  • Lecture
    Once a week, the lecture on Chinese economy, culture, calligraphy, etc. will be given.
  • Visits to industries and businesses
    Every week, visits to industries and businesses will be organized, such as Dalian Economic and Technological Development Area, government-owned companies, IT parks and other environment-related facilities.
  • Visits to cultural facilities
    On Saturdays, visits to cultural facilities are planned. Destinations include Beijing operas, the “203 hill”, and Dalian Modern Museum.
  • Optional tours
    Students can participate in a day trip to Shenyang (capital of Liaoning Province). This optional tour costs 500 yuan (JPY 7,500).
  • Exchange with Chinese students
    Every group of three Japanese students will have one Chinese student as their tutor.
  • Free time
    We are going to allow students to have as much free time as possible in order to provide them opportunities to practice their Chinese. However, please remember to take necessary precautions so as not to become involved in danger.

3-24 March 2007
3 Host Institution
International Institute of Chinese Language and Culture, Dongbei University of Finance and Economics, China

5 Cost
Cost of this study tour is JPY 138,000 (as of 2005, at the exchange rate of 1 yuan=JPY 15.1)
The cost includes:
Round-trip airfares from Osaka (KIX) to Dalian (DLC), accommodation for 21 nights, tuition for Chinese lessons and off-campus training, and handling fees at the university.
The cost does NOT include:
Fees for visa, traveler's insurance, passport (if not obtained), textbooks, optional tours, fees required for activities during the free time, and food expenses.
6 Safety Precautions
Taking precautions on your own
It is advisable to go in groups when going out to the center of the city (about thirty minutes by bus). Streets are quite deserted at night, so students should return to the apartment by 10:00 p.m. for safety reasons.
It is extremely important to avoid traffic accidents, since in China cars drive on the right side of the streets and not many traffic lights are installed. Further, drivers have priorities over pedestrians (e.g. drivers can always turn to the right on the streets, even if the red light is on.)
7 Credit
Two credits may be earned for participation in this program.
8 For further study
Students interested in pursuing their studies at Dongbei University of Finance and Economics can apply for a one-year Exchange Student Program starting in March the next year.
