Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module will focus on further developing communicative competence of Chinese to a higher level, improving fluency and accuracy in both oral and written performances. Students will also be trained to use more advanced reading and writing techniques. It will involve student presentation on certain chosen topics and group discussion. The teaching is mainly based on authentic materials from media of the native speaking countries. The stimulus material (aural, written and visual) not only provides further consolidation of Chinese linguistic elements but also offers more insights into China's history, geography and everyday life in today's China. There are homework and online resources to complement classroom learning.

Principal learning outcomes

Timetabled teaching activities

2 hours language classes per week, plus at least 3 hours structured independent learning each week. Commencing Term 1, week 2.
