The course consists of three terms with 10 weeks each term. The course is designed to further develop to intermediate level the Chinese language competencies students have already acquired. Learners will deepen their understanding of Chinese grammar and vocabulary and become able to communicate with greater ease and fluency. Comprehension skills will be developed through reading Chinese newspapers and similar authentic materials from other media. The course also aims to further students’ understanding of different aspects of life in Chinese societies, both past and present, through various illustrative topics.
The course is taught in English and Chinese and includes coverage of the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing and a good balance between understanding the systems of Chinese grammar and vocabulary, developing the skills of comprehending and producing Chinese in speech and writing, guided practice in language usage and use and authentic communicative activities. Class size is limited to fifteen to allow intensive interactive practice with individual feedback and advice on progress.
