An extension of the communicative approach seeking to develop linguistic skills appropriate to students’ future career and social needs.
The number of people who are learning Chinese as a second language is increasing very
rapidly. It is also the second most common language on the Internet. As China is an
increasingly important business partner of New Zealand, learning Chinese will give
you the edge over other candidates for a wide variety of jobs.
CHIN 335 is a continuation of CHIN 334 and continues to further develop students' language skills and understanding of Chinese culture and society.

- Paper Structure
- The weekly schedule for teaching and learning is the same as that of CHIN 334, except the requirement for watching authentic Chinese TV drama/movies is now a weekly task, and students must answer questions regarding what they have watched. The paper also encourages students to read texts in other Chinese text books of an advanced level. Towards the end of the semester students will be led to read Chinese short stories in the original language. The teaching is interactive between the instructor and students, and every class hour involves students gaining practice in listening, speaking, writing and reading.
