This 5 week combined language and politics course enables students to study Chinese language alongside a comprehensive introduction to Chinese politics and society.
Students will undertake one of two levels of Chinese language:
Beginners Chinese (level 1) is designed for ab initio learners and does not require any prior knowledge of Mandarin Chinese or
Beginners Chinese (level 2) which is a continuation of Beginners Chinese 1 and completes the coverage of the major grammar and syntax of Modern Chinese.
As well as the language students will be focusing on the transformations within society and politics that have taken place since the Communist Party came to power in 1949. In addition to providing a historical overview and factual information, the course aims to promote critical understanding of Chinese political events and social structures. An important aim of the course is to encourage students to move beyond the often one-sided image of China presented in the Western media.
