Intermediate Chinese I

This class allows students who have successfully completed the Beginning Chinese series at the Confucius Institute, or those who have a similar level of Chinese, to improve their ability to communicate in Chinese. In this course students will continue to work on reading, listening, speaking, and writing Chinese with a focus on using a wider vocabulary and more complex sentences. By the end of the session students will improve their conversational ability and be able to describe common things, events, and experiences verbally and in writing. Students who complete this level may want to consider taking the HSK-3*.

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