Staff Chinese Class Has Been Successfully Launched

2019-3-15

The spring semester staff Chinese class, a survival level conversation-based Chinese language course offered by CLE, has been successfully launched this February. With many faculty and staff from more than 7 countries enrolled in class, staff Chinese classroom is full of learning vibes and joy.

 

Though this course teaches very basic Chinese language to international faculty and staff, it is aimed to solve their practical language problems in many different life situations. For example, shop for grocery, order food in a restaurant, get your favorite coffee at illy’s, or have a perfect haircut at a barber shop.

 

For foreign faculty and staff to enjoy Chinese local life and culture, communication is a vital part. Staff Chinese class is not only providing basic language skills, such as self-introduction, expressing gratitude and apology, or launching casual talks, but also trying to acquaint our foreign faculty and staff with cross-cultural awareness under Chinese social context.

 

According to course lecturer Rongrong, this staff Chinese class can also be very customized. Each class, she invites students to share some daily situations where specific Chinese expressions are in urgent need. Any specific Chinese language requests are welcome in her class. She says she will try to fabricate these situations into her future course design.
