COURSE DESCRIPTION

Introductory Course

This course will focus on simple greetings, self-introductions, and basic phrases, with an emphasis on learning the four Chinese tones and accurate Chinese pronunciation. Students will have opportunities to practice these basic greetings through face to face practices as well as various media to create an engaging environment for students.

Beginner Course

This course will familiarize students with day to day life conversations. By learning commonly used phrases, establishing basic grammar and learning practical dialogue, students will build a strong foundation for learning more vocabulary to apply their basics to.

Intermediate Course

The course explores a wider range of topics related to daily life, including money, mathematics, cardinal directions, transportation, holidays, clothing and shopping. Students will expand their vocabulary and grammar and improve their communication skills by practicing conversations that model real life situations.

Advanced Course

The advanced course places an emphasis on improving students’ fluency and communication skills. Discussion topics include food and drinks, health and fitness, science and technology, entertainment and hobbies, occupations, and fashion. Students will build on their vocabulary and grammar, while teachers begin to weave subjects from other disciplines to encourage students to express their own thoughts in Chinese.

There will be a simple pre-assessment before the course to determine which level a student places in.
