This is a follow-on course for learners who have completed at least 3 years study of the subject. Learners will, in a fun, supportive learning environment, continue to understand and make yourself understood in a range of increasingly unpredictable everyday situations. The focus of this course will be on speaking and listening. The course will include writing short paragraphs in Pinyin, developing some basic skills in writing Chinese characters. In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.
The course is designed for those who wish to converse a little more in the language when visiting the country. The main topics that will be covered are - describing a social activity with where, when, who and what; ordering a full meal with drink in a restaurant; describing a person’s appearance and personality; telling the sequences of events and explaining the reason or cause of actions, making comparisons and describing a past event.
If you are to gain maximum benefit and enjoyment from your language learning, it will be useful to spend some time working between sessions. There will usually be a small amount of homework set each week.
The course will equip students with some knowledge on radicals for better understanding of the Chinese characters, with grammar structures for more fluent conversation and for writing simple texts on learned topics.
We will also introduce some culture/traditions alongside the Chinese traditional festivals.
