Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module will be offered to students who have completed Chinese 2 or who already have some knowledge of Chinese - equivalent to that covered by the Chinese 2 syllabus. The module will build upon previously learned knowledge to use more complex grammar and sentence patterns, understand authentic texts, further develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills to deal with a wider range of predictable situations, and gain more insights into Chinese culture. This level allows the students to take a faster pace to achieve the same outcomes as Chinese 4 by the end of the study.

Principal learning outcomes

Develop oral fluency and accuracy in a range of predictable and unpredictable situations; gather information from authentic texts of a variety of informal and formal genres; produce reasonably long essays and reports; increase intercultural knowledge and understanding of contemporary Chinese society.

Timetabled teaching activities

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