Anti-requisite(s): 97114 Developing Chinese Reading and Writing Skills 1


This subject is designed for students who have no previous knowledge of Chinese. It aims to meet students' communication needs in everyday social interaction in China and other Chinese-speaking communities, not only by developing basic skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing, but also by facilitating an understanding of and engagement with the sociocultural contexts in which the language is used. Pinyin, the official transcription system, is learned to guide pronunciation of the Chinese language. Students are expected to take an active part in learning activities to practise and consolidate their language skills with their peers.
