The Confucius Institute at UNC Charlotte is proud to offer non-credit community-based Chinese language and culture courses to those who are interested in learning about China and Chinese society. All courses are taught by experienced teachers and/or native speakers of Chinese. Instructional materials and topics have been reviewed by the Confucius Institute's Faculty Advisory Council, composed of UNC Charlotte faculty.
This course further empowers students who successfully completed Introductory Chinese II at the Confucius Institute at UNC Charlotte, or those at a similar level, to continue to improve reading, listening, and speaking in Chinese.
Students completing the full series of Introductory Chinese (I, II, and III) will learn about 150 Chinese characters. This course will further help students build their foundations in daily topics while increasing vocabulary and new grammatical structures. Students will talk about weather, health, directions, sports, games, and study of Chinese. By the end of the session, students will be able to exchange a short conversation on the topics above, and describe their Chinese study.
Students who complete the Introductory Chinese Course Series and meet all of the requirements will be prepared to pass the HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, Chinese Proficiency Exam) level 1 with ease.
Contact the Confucius Institute for more information about registration and preparation for the HSK.
