    ICLP has been offering a rigorous summer program to Flagship students since 2012. Over the years, Flagship students who received intensive language instruction at ICLP have found their speaking, listening, reading, and writing abilities to improve by at least one sub-level over the course of one summer.

    Founded in 1962 to train and develop the oral discursive ability of America's academic elite, ICLP has provided instruction to many alumni who serve in academia and government over the last half century. By studying with ICLP instructors, students will not only improve their Chinese ability significantly, but also enjoy Taiwan's abundant, diverse, and exquisite cultures. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak and resulting travel restrictions worldwide, ICLP is offering online classes this summer so Flagship students can continue to strengthen their language abilities amid the pandemic.

    PROGRAM DURATION: 9 weeks (June 21–August 20, 2021)
    INSTRUCTIONAL HOURS: 90 class hours (2 class hours/day), optional Cold Reading class (1 class hour/day, available upon request with extra fees), plus mandatory lectures and salon sessions
