through Cornell University for the intensive study of CHINESE or
JAPANESE.  Cornell University offers a Full-Year Chinese and Japanese
language program (FALCON) during which students spend six hours a day, five
days a week, studying language only, and thus are able to complete as much

Practice sections are restricted in size and are conducted by native
speakers. One lecture daily is conducted in English to provide necessary
analysis and explanation.
