VU alumni are invited to enrol in a free Mandarin course, designed and delivered by Victoria Business Confucius Institute. You will receive an introduction to Chinese Mandarin, with an emphasis on listening and speaking skills. No prior knowledge or experience in Chinese is required.
The VBCI now offers non-award units, providing participants with a good opportunity to learn Mandarin Chinese, focusing on developing communication skills, supported with basic Chinese characters and culture. Those units also provide participants with the opportunity to learn Mandarin and gain an overview of China's changing environment and current business practices. All classes will be delivered online through Zoom.
The program is divided into 2 pathways Basic Chinese and Business Chinese. There are 13 sessions in total for each unit, including 12 teaching sessions and 1 assessment session. Each session lasts for 1.5 hours.
