UT to offer Chinese language courses

As China’s economy continues to surge, more people are looking to partner with the country, which is driving an increased demand to learn its language and learn more about the world’s most populous country.

Through its partnership with Yanshan University, located in Qinhuangdao, China, The University of Toledo is hosting beginner and intermediate Chinese language courses this fall taught by master teachers from Yanshan University. Classes begin the week of
August 20, 2007.

The classes will integrate more than just language — instructors will teach students about Chinese culture, history, business, and etiquette.

The teachers are experts in their fields. One is head of the department of language at
Yanshan University, and the other is head of Yanshan's intercultural institute. Both have the highest certificates of competence/licensure by the Chinese government — more significant than Ohio Department of Education licensure.

The material is covered in 10 weeks, quickly enough to immerse students in language while giving them a comprehensive overview of Chinese culture. Classes will be held two nights a week after work hours and on Saturday mornings.

The goal of the class is to give students increased language skills and the ability to comfortably communicate in the global economy. Those skills should put students ahead in the Chinese marketplace and help them stand out as a leader in intercultural business.
No credits will be given for the courses and they will not apply to any degree.
