Unless you have never studied or been exposed to the Chinese language, you will need to take a placement test to determine the level at which you should begin your foreign language course work.


The program offers a full range of modern Chinese (Mandarin) courses from beginning (Chin 10A) to high advanced (Chin 120B) levels. We also offer a special course for students who speak fluent Chinese but do not read or write Chinese (Chin 29B), an advanced business Chinese course that will prepare students for doing business in and/or with China (Chin 106B) and a course taught in English to help students understand Chinese history and culture through film (Chin 130B).

Courses are taught by experienced instructors who follow the highest standards of Chinese teaching in the United States and employ proven pedagogy and new technology to make courses highly efficient.
