20 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: EAS1023, EAS1024, EAS1025, EAS1026

Aims/Description: This module focuses on receptive activities and written productive activities in the Chinese language at the post-beginning to lower-intermediate level. It acts as a transition between the teacher-centred learning required for the acquisition of elementary and intermediate language skills, and the autonomous and self-directed learning required at more advanced levels. More grammar points are introduced and consolidated. Translation and functional reading skills are extended, with longer and more complicated texts.

Restrictions on availability: Chinese degrees only

Teaching Methods: Language seminars each week will develop various language skills, including grammar, writing, reading and translation (A1, A2, A3, A4, LO1, LO2, LO3, LO4). Language seminars will be mainly teacher-led, but there are small activities that aim to raise students┐ awareness towards the different aspects of Chinese language and culture Independent study is also encouraged outside classroom and there will be supplemental materials available on MOLE to support that (A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, LO1, LO2, LO3, LO4, LO5).
Assessment: Formal Exam
