VU alumni are eligible to enrol in a free Mandarin course, designed and delivered by Victoria Business Confucius Institute to provide participants with an opportunity to learn Chinese Mandarin. Specifically, it provides an introduction at a reasonable pace with the emphasis on developing listening and speaking skills.
The introductory-level course includes five workshops (45mins each) covering 5 different topics, with 20 tutorials for daily practice based on the workshops. The first course is delivered from 5 October to 6 November 2020 with a workshop on the Monday, followed by lessons on Tuesday to Friday with a brief daily practice, 5 weeks in total. No prior knowledge or experience in Chinese is required.
On successful completion of this session, participants will be able to:
- have a basic understanding of Chinese language and its structure
- perform basic greetings and expressions for daily communication
- learn Mandarin through other platforms by themselves.
