We are currently offering the following modules in Mandarin-Chinese:
Inter Faculty Mandarin Chinese (1A) LK11MA
This module assumes no prior knowledge of the language. It introduces the basic structure of the language through topics relating to social and everyday life in the country. Each session will consist of a variety of activities arising from the themes and structures which underpin the course programme.
Inter Faculty Mandarin Chinese (2A) LK22MA
This module assumes a basic knowledge of the language at approximately GCSE standard - it is, however, recognised that the GCSE may have been taken several years ago and the courses are designed to revise and develop basic structures. The four skills of reading, listening, speaking and writing are expanded to enable participation in discussions with reasonable fluency and accuracy.
Inter Faculty Mandarin Chinese (3A) LK33MA
This module develops the speaking and productive skills of language learning to enable the students to function effectively at an intermediate level. The module stresses the productive skills, particularly spoken and written ones. Teaching through the medium of the target language is the norm.
Inter Faculty Mandarin Chinese (4A) LK34MA
This module further strengthens the four skills of reading, listening, speaking and writing to enable students to gather and process information accurately and quickly through discussion, from radio and TV and from written sources.
