#1Summer Program 暑期班
The summer program consists of nine weeks. Classes are held from Monday to Friday; students can expect to have one individual class as well as three group classes of three to four students each day*. One class is 50 minutes.
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak and resulting travel restrictions worldwide, ICLP is offering an online track for students who may have difficulties traveling to Taiwan for the 2020 Summer Program. Admitted students may choose to enroll in either the Physical Track or Online Track, and must inform ICLP of their decision by May 3, 2020.
This Online Track package is only available for the 2020 Summer Program to students located outside of Taiwan.
► Further information on the two tracks, track selection deadlines, and refund policy for this summer (please click)
Prior to enrolling at ICLP, students are recommended to have at least two years of language training in Chinese or the equivalence thereof at an intensive program (with overall Chinese language ability at or above the Intermediate-Mid level, TOCFL B1, CEFR B1, or HSK4). Beginners are accepted once there are enough applicants to form a beginner's class.
Classes at the ICLP emphasize oral practice, so students must spend adequate time preparing and reviewing each lesson. While speaking is a core component of the ICLP curriculum, all classes provide comprehensive training in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Coursework may include reading materials, recorded audio materials, written assignments, and speeches.
The ICLP is an immersive Chinese language environment. Textbooks are written in Chinese characters; some are rendered in simplified Chinese to suit students' needs. Students are required to speak exclusively in Chinese at all times, both in the classroom and within the ICLP area.

Note: ICLP courses are known for their effectiveness. If ICLP is unable to find a class that suits a student's exact level or learning pace, our Instructional Office will modify the student's class module to two one-on-one classes a day so as to facilitate their learning.
