Chinese for Essential Communication (online course)
This course is for you if you want to learn some basic Chinese, either for your career or for your holidays. No previous knowledge of the language is required. You will get ample opportunity to practise conversational skills in a small group environment and to develop some cross-culture awareness for communication.
Learning and teaching
The emphasis of the course is on participation and practice. You will be encouraged to actively participate in class through various friendly activities designed to stimulate communication.
Coursework and assessment
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.
In addition to the class sessions, we recommend that you spend time between the lessons, revising and practising what has been done in class.
