Chinese Culture and Language

 

Chinese Language Online Courses

With the UWTSD Confucius Institute

This course is ideal for students who are interested in world culture and keen to acquire the basics of a language not generally taught in most schools.  

Students will explore the history, mythology and rich cultural heritage of China while also drawing on comparative examples from the Welsh cultural heritage. 

Each week, students will be introduced to some basic Mandarin Chinese giving them the language tools to introduce themselves and their families.  

They will also explore the fascinating evolution of the Chinese system of writing from pictographs to the simplified characters used in China today.

At the end of the course, students will gather together their portfolio of mini tasks and choose a topic to present as a video, or voice recording with slideshow, or illustrated essay.
