Course description

Our intensive summer school offers programmes for both beginner and post-beginner Mandarin learners. Taking place in July, each course runs for two weeks allowing students to develop skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. 

In 2015 we are pleased to announce that students can also take the beginner or post-beginner courses in August. 

Morning sessions will consist of three hours of classroom-based learning, while afternoons will consist of a further three hours of Chinese characters, language exercises and one-to-one oral practice. The course will culminate with a mock HSK exam and mini graduation ceremony.

Course requirements

For the Beginner Course, no previous knowledge or study of Chinese is required. For the Post-Beginner course please see requirements here
