Chi­nese Con­ver­sa­tion Course in the Fall

Writ­ten by CIP Admin.

This non-​credit course is designed for adult begin­ners with no or very lit­tle prior knowl­edge of Man­darin Chi­nese. Focus­ing on spo­ken Chi­nese, this course will train the par­tic­i­pants’ basic con­ver­sa­tional skills in Man­darin Chi­nese with top­ics rang­ing from greet­ing, talk­ing about pro­fes­sions to intro­duc­ing fam­ily and mak­ing small talks. Cul­tural top­ics such as fam­ily, cui­sine, tourism, career and edu­ca­tion will be intro­duced as well. After this course, par­tic­i­pants will be able to func­tion socially in every­day sit­u­a­tions when com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the Chi­nese. While mem­o­riz­ing the Chi­nese char­ac­ters is optional, we will also intro­duce the essen­tials of Chi­nese char­ac­ters, or Hanzi, to give the learn­ers a full pic­ture of Man­darin Chi­nese. Course mate­ri­als will be provided.
