In the winter semester 2017 we offer the following language courses:

 

 

Chinese A1:

The Chinese A1 course offers an introduction to the modern language of Putonghua (普通话), also known as Mandarin. No prior knowledge of the Chinese language is required. The aim of the course is an introduction to the pronunciation, the Chinese characters as well as grammar and vocabulary. The participants will not only learn how to communicate in everyday situations about simple things, but also gain a better understanding of the country and its culture. By the end of the course, participants will be familiar with Chinese phonetics including initial and final sounds, tones or neutral sound as well as syllables and sound shifts. For a basic vocabulary at the level of A1, you should have about 150 words; passively one should be able to read about 300 Chinese characters, and actively write about 100 characters. After the successful participation in the course, their Chinese proficiency will be approx. at the level of HSK 1.

 

Chinese A2:

This continuation course is aimed at Chinese-learners who have already attended the course "Chinese A1" or for those with previous knowledge. The goal of the course is to learn about 300 Chinese characters by reading and writing as well as the acquisition of approx. 600 words. Participants should be able to read and understand about 300 characters of course-relevant reading texts. They also learn skills in intercultural communication. After the successful participation in the course, their Chinese proficiency will be approx. at the level of HSK 2.

 

Chinese B1-B2:

This continuation course is aimed at Chinese-learners who have already attended the course in Chinese A2, or for those with previous knowledge. The aim of the course is the passive and active mastery of approx. 450 Chinese characters in reading and writing as well as the safe use of approx. 900 words. In terms of reading, some longer reading texts of 500 characters are the standard; in addition, the participants should be able to produce short texts of their own (about 150-300 characters). After the successful participation in the course, their Chinese proficiency will be approx. at the level of HSK 3 and 4.

 

Chinese for advanced:

This course is intended for Chinese students who have already attended the Chinese B1-B2 course, or those who have already attained the HSK 4 level. The course presupposes and deepens basic knowledge of the Chinese language. Participants will improve their communication skills and learn to discuss complex topics. The vocabulary and the repertoire of Chinese characters are expanded, discussions are held around more complex topics, as well as speeches and proverbs. The aim of the course is to achieve the level of HSK 5 as well as the knowledge of Chinese culture and country studies.

 

Chinese for Children:

This course is specifically designed for children with an interest in Chinese language and culture. In 24 teaching units the children learn simple dialogues and the writing of Chinese characters. Cultural specialties such as traditional songs, games and painting are also taught. The young participants will be able to read the children's books written in the phonetic transcription Pinyin and to talk about simple, everyday topics. Through this course, the language test level YCT 1 (Youth Chinese Test) is achieved.
