Learning objectives
The primary learning objective of Chinese 6 is to enable the students to use the Chinese language to communicate effectively about firm specific aspects of Chinese business life.
Teaching is based on various resources i.e. authentic texts, conventional textbook material, adds, TV clips etc. The course provides the students with opportunities to articulate and debate their understanding of the topics in Chinese. After this course, the students should be prepared to read, talk about and discuss business related topics. We aim at expanding the range of vocabulary and level of fluency even further.
