Chinese Language Course

The Communicative Chinese course aims to help learners communicate with native Chinese speakers. Given the vast opportunities opening up in China, interaction with the Chinese will be critical for businesspersons with dealings in China, exporters and importers, and students wanting to study in China.

The course will be offered initially at three levels, two courses at the beginner's level and one at the pre-intermediate level. The course at each level will be for 60 hours. Students will be expected to buy recommended material for use in the classroom.

Beginner's Module 1 will stress the application of everyday Chinese and aims to enable students understand and use simple Chinese phrases, meet basic communication needs and further their understanding of Chinese language and culture. The course will be commensurate with CEFR level A1.

Beginner's Module 2 will be a faster paced module with more stress on practical usage for a person wanting to visit China, with vocabulary suited to travel, food etc.

The Pre-Intermediate level would correspond to CEFR level A2. The minimum eligibility criterion for a student wanting to enrol at this level is basic knowledge of about 150 characters and simple sentence patterns. A test will be conducted to assess a student's eligibility for admission to the pre-intermediate level. 

The classes will be interactive and based on the latest publications by the Chinese Government and hence on the latest research done on teaching Chinese.

The course is being offered to individual students enrolling at the Institute as well as to corporate clients. For corporate training needs, the course content will be tailored to meet the corporate's specific training requirements. 

The course will be conducted by a person who has studied at a Chinese Language Institute in Beijing and has cleared the highest level of testing conducted to assess proficiency in the language by the Chinese Government. 

The schedule for classes is as follows:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: Two sessions of an hour and a half each at 11.30 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Weekend classes on Saturdays and Sundays: From 10 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.
