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.
This course is a continuation of CHIN132. If you have not completed CHIN132, you may still be able to enrol in this paper if you have acquired an advanced beginner proficiency in Chinese, by completing a beginner-to-intermediate level Chinese course elsewhere (e.g., in your high school, or in another university) or via other means (e.g., living in China, being exposed to Chinese in a family setting). If this is the case, you need to contact the Programme Coordinator. Email: email@example.com
