Learning the language
How many levels are there in the Chinese language class?
The Chinese Language Summer Programme is typically made up of students with no previous knowledge of Chinese language, however if you know some Chinese, we may be able to place you in an intermediate class to further develop the knowledge you already have. If there are not enough INTO China students to run an intermediate class, you may be placed with non-INTO China students to ensure the best suited language tuition.
For academic students at Nankai University, beginner-level Chinese language classes are offered as part of your course. Academic students at DUFE have access to futher class levels including intermediate and higher level Chinese language classes.
