Brush-up your Chinese Language Skills (online course)
This module is for you if you want to speak Mandarin Chinese with standard pronunciations, good tones, and well-mastered daily oral communication skills.
By focusing on tones and basic conversational sentence patterns, the module will also connect them with Chinese culture. Some basic knowledge of Mandarin equivalent to Chinese Beginners I is required for taking the module.
Activities will be organized in such a way that students will have ample opportunity to practise speaking and listening. In the end, they are expected to be able to use simple Chinese vocabulary and grammar patterns for oral communication, to pick up information by listening, and to narrate in simple vocabulary and grammar patterns. The following topics will be covered: pronunciation, tones, and intonation; greetings; asking the name; asking the way; asking the price; asking the time; asking the weather; likes and dislikes.
This course is for students who have no prior knowledge of Chinese or those who have learned Chinese for one semester but need to focus more on improving pronunciation and speaking skills.
Dysgu ac addysgu
The emphasis of the course is on participation and students are encouraged to actively participate in class through various non-threatening forms of activities designed to stimulate communication.
Gwaith cwrs ac asesu
For us the most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects.
The assessment of this course is divided into four parts to assess the skills of speaking and listening. It is designed to enhance what you have learnt during the course.
Additional to the class sessions, we recommend that you spend time between the lessons, revising and practising what has been done in class.
