20 Credits GRADUATE YEAR


Pre-requisites: EAS6051


Aims/Description: The aims of this Unit are to build on the skills developed in Chinese 1 and enable students to acquire basic communicative competence in Chinese language across the skills range. Reading and writing skills are taught with an emphasis on structure and principle to provide a solid foundation of core grammar. Practical speaking and listening skills, taught by means of audio materials and telephone interview by experienced native speakers, are equally emphasised. Clear, controlled vocabulary attainment targets are set and strategies for character learning are introduced from the earliest stages. By the end of the Unit students will have acquired a vocabulary of around 600 words and 450 Chinese characters.
