Do you want to learn Chinese while also gaining a better understanding of what life is like in contemporary China? Spend a semester or a year at the International College of Southwest University in Chongqing, China. Students can enroll in a year-long language program based on their skill-level, from absolute beginner to advanced.

Chongqing is an important hub of transportation and commerce. It is surrounded by mountains and situated at the point where the Jailing and Yangtze Rivers meet. Once the provisional capitol of China, Chongqing is steeped in history, both ancient and recent; nearby attractions include the 7th century Dazu Rock Carvings (a UNESCO World Heritage site) and an underwater museum near the Three Gorges Dam.
