Chinese Language Study

Great Wall of China

The World Languages and Cultures Department supports the growing interest in China and its culture by offering courses ranging from Elementary to Advanced Chinese where the emphasis is to develop all four skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The intermediate and Advanced courses stress better control in pronunciation and grammatical rules and the understanding of the language as an integral part of Chinese living. Technology tools and multimedia resources are integrated and used extensively as part of the language learning environment.
