Chinese (Mandarin) Advanced

This is an advanced course for any student wishing to develop their language skills for business, travel or everyday use. Students will develop skills to use in conversation, reading, listening and writing. To join in this advanced class, you need to have already mastered 1200 characters, meaning you can read ,and write,and compose speech correctly. Book 5 marks a milestone, as it is completely written in Chinese, including grammar, drills, practices etc. No English is used to explain anything and we will conduct the class in Chinese as much as we can. In order to make the class interesting, we will may add extras such as discussion of movies, history, classic or modern literature, dependent on student interest.
