Chinese Language 4B

Academic Year 2019-20

About the course

To build on the Chinese language skills developed in the year abroad to the point where graduates are capable of using Chinese as a working language for employment or further study / research, and are aware of the cultural imperatives for operating in such an environment. The course will primarily employ ‘real’ texts, newspapers, TV reports, internet material, in a topic based approach designed to maximise students’ ability to absorb information in Chinese and formulate arguments in the language in discussions on contemporary real-life issues.
