"CLI's teachers are more than instructors – they're lifelines, mentors, and friends. CLI expects and encourages success, which drives its students to surpass their own expectations. CLI provided me with a once in a lifetime experience that I will cherish forever."
- Ashleigh Lanza, Summer 2011
With 22 classrooms, two full kitchens, several lounge areas and 36 private living spaces, CLI provides the perfect place to pursue full proficiency in the Mandarin language.
The majority of all students' coursework is one-on-one, while small group classes are also offered. Students work with several unique teachers along their path to full Mandarin proficiency.
