At IUP students are provided with highly individualized instruction. The teacher to student ratio is currently 1:2 and course assignments include at least one daily private tutorial, and several small group classes. Each student is given individual attention to language skill areas that need improvement and their progress is closely monitored over their entire course of study. Such individualized instruction has consistently shown positive results over the nearly 40 year history of the program.
IUP is a language-pledge program. Students are only allowed to speak Chinese in our language center and in all program-related activities.

IUP’s mission is to raise students’ Chinese language proficiency to a level at which they can function independently in professional or academic careers including business consulting, management, public relations, law, education and journalism.
