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.

This class will be delivered online via the online platform Zoom. Enrolling students need to ensure they have an email, a reliable internet connection, microphone/speakers and access to a tablet, smartphone or computer. Classes will consist of a minimum of 1.5 hours virtual class time, together with 30 minutes worth of work to be completed independently.
