Beginning Chinese III

Beginning Chinese III allows students who successfully completed Beginning Chinese II at the Confucius Institute, or those who have a similar level of Chinese, to continue to work on reading, listening, speaking, and writing Chinese. In this course students will learn new sentence structures and increase vocabulary. By the end of the session, students will be able to conduct more in-depth conversations on everyday topics, and express basic attitudes and emotions. Students who complete this level may want to consider taking the HSK-2.*

*The HSK is a standardized international Chinese proficiency test for non-native speakers and is conducted at the Confucius Institute at the University of Minnesota twice yearly. Learn more about the HSK.
