Aims/Description: This year abroad at Nanjing University is designed to equip students with more advanced language skills, as well as to immerse them in Chinese culture, enabling them to take part in a range of structured and informal learning experiences to develop their familiarity with the Chinese social, cultural and physical environments. On completion of the module they will have acquired facility in operating with confidence with a Chinese language environment, possessing a vocabulary of around 3000 characters. Both of these elements are essential for progression to Level 3. Where extenuating circumstances prevent a cohort, or a large portion of a cohort, from completing a complete academic year abroad, the School of East Asian Studies will provide alternative arrangements for students to meet the language learning outcomes.
