*Courses include 10 consecutive weekly classes (barring major holidays). Classes meet once a week for 2 hours at our location, or online. The curriculum of our language program is built for groups of three to nine students who complete the material in ten weeks. We also offer more immersive classes that are seven weeks for two students, and five weeks for private lessons.
This level utilizes vocabulary and grammar learned in previous courses, but teaches new vocabulary and grammar for getting around from location to location, and explaining location to others. This way you can ask for and communicate directions whether in a home or around town.
Students will get to know the different types of transportation and they will be able to order meals in Chinese restaurants.
Students will learn to register for a social activity over the phone.
Students will learn to get to know the arrangement inside a home, such as: the living room, kitchen, bed room and the furniture that is located in those rooms.
At the 400+ level, the student will practice conversations in Chinese in formal and informal settings. At this point, we begin including technical language and vocabulary specific to a person's career. For example, if a person is a doctor, we would be more specific in studying the material for the medical field… and for the business trade, classes are more concentrated on business situations.
