Regular Courses

Class Introduction:

The programs of CLC operate on the quarter basis, four quarters within one year and three months for each quarter. Each quarter is offered in March, June, September and December. A six-week Summer Intensive Program is also offered in July. Students who have ever learned Chinese will be given the placement test after the enrolment for the program. Classes are made small, with four to ten students, because "The fewer students there are, the more chances of practice students will receive", which is the basic principle for language learning. The classes are conducted 3 hours per day, 15 hours per week.

The one-on-one class and the other programs are also designed to meet the students’ request. The average length of programs is about 9 to 1 year, except for the summer intensive program which lasts 6 weeks only. The consultation from teachers will also be provided to students who encounter the problems while they are learning Chinese. The free pronunciation courses are also offered at the 1st week of each quarter for helping students learn the Mandarin Phonetic Symbols.

Three kinds of courses are proposed according to the difference of students’ language proficiency. The first one is the integrated course. Second is the improvement course. The last one is the practical course:

 Integrated Courses are divided into eight levels and aim to develop students’ general language skills, which are listening, speaking, reading and writing.

The improvement courses, based on the integrated course, focus on improving the proficiency of daily conversation and reading so that the conversation class which has three levels and the reading class which is divided into eight levels are offered.

Practical courses are for students who are above the advanced level. Besides, the cultural courses and individual class are also proposed to meet the needs of students. Placement evaluations are given to each student in order to determine his or her appropriate class level.
