Developed in conjunction with the Chinese Flagship Program at Indiana University, the Workshop's Level 4 Chinese course is an intensive, immersive program equivalent to 4th-Year curriculum in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Indiana University.
This course is designed for students with Intermediate High proficiency who want to solidify advanced speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Students who complete the course successfully will reach Advanced Low proficiency.
Working with authentic materials showcasing Chinese culture, students will improve their mastery of the linguistic and cultural skills they need in order to function effectively in a Chinese-speaking environment. They will be able to understand materials from a range of registers and genres and to speak and write appropriately in a range of formal, informal, professional, and academic environments.
Chinese 4 combines 4 hours a day of formal classroom instruction, 30 minutes a day of one-on-one skills training, and daily Chinese-language activities led by facilitators from across the Chinese-speaking world.
