The study of Chinese develops students’ ability to understand and use a language which is spoken by about a quarter of the world’s population. Taught by highly qualified tutors, the Chinese course is tailored for the student and will focus on areas that could be improved upon. Students will engage in one-on-one private tuition to maximise targeted improvement. It encourages the development of literate individuals capable of critical and imaginative thinking, aesthetic appreciation and creativity. Students will be trained in the dimensions of reading, writing, speaking and listening to build a solid foundation for further expeditions into the depths of such a complex language.
