2016 Mandarin courses ：
The Chinese and Literature classes of our center are on the quarterly system. Each class is about 5~12 students. The teaching materials mainly focus on the introduction of Taiwan and the Chinese culture with the help of other foreign students' customs and cultures. Our teaching goal is to integrate the four abilities: listening, speaking, reading, and writing; moreover, we also focus on humane and aesthetic features of the Chinese script.
Humanities symbolize knowledge and humanism in Chinese culture, which is the key of Chinese cultural legacy. The aesthetic feature refers to the specific beauty such as script, phonology, figure, form, and image, which is the concrete embodiment of artistic beauty. The classes in our center concentrate on popular, useful and communicative functions to reinforce the demand of communication. Besides, through a situated-content dialogue, the common sentences and vocabularies can be learned. With the knowledge of Taiwanese and Chinese cultures, learners can efficiently learn the Chinese language.
