General Background

China Prep provides small groups of high school students with dynamic, experiential programs to
educate and inspire them to understand Chinese language and culture.

Our China Prep in New York program combines structured two weeks of Mandarin language classes
with an exploration of New York City’s vast China resources. For example, participants might attend
Chinese class in the morning and visit a modern Chinese art gallery in the afternoon. As another
example, the group might discuss U.S.-China trade relations in culture class and visit with a prominent
company owner with business interests in China. New York City is home to some of the best China
resources in the world. From art museums to Buddhist temples to Chinatown wet markets to
multinational companies, we see NYC as the ideal environment outside of China to explore Chinese
culture while building participants’ language skills.

CP in NY participants will spend several hours a day devoted to Chinese language and culture study.
They will attend two structured hours of Mandarin class time in the morning taught by seasoned
bilingual educators followed by an hour of Chinese cultural activities. Students will be given a
placement test and assigned to either the beginner or intermediate levels. Language learning will
continue in the evening through twice a week one-on-one sessions with a teacher and independent
homework time to prepare for the next day’s class.

We encourage you to view our website, www.chinaprep.com, to learn more about our unique programs,
including information about itineraries and past programs.
