What is the course about?

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

Students should have completed Chinese beginners, or studied Chinese for approximately 1 year recently or have developed an equivalent competence in the language.

For further details of the specific foreign language skills required for this level, please see the languages self-assessment chart at the start of the languages section of our course guide, or at http://www.citylit.ac.uk/self-assess-your-level. You will also need to be able to respond to simple instructions and explanations, as well as read course documents, in English. You will need to be at ease with the use of numbers for daily activities (e.g. using money, telling the time, using the 24 hour clock, reading timetables). It would also be helpful if you had some knowledge of basic grammar terminology such as: a verb and a noun.

Homework is highly recommended to consolidate learning.
