The goal of the QISS Chinese program is to assist students’ progress and interests in the understanding of Chinese culture and language. Students are expected touse Chinese to exchange information and to communicate their ideas. According to the Chinese 'entrance' tests, Chinese language classes are divided into three stages , including beginning (low and high), intermediate (low and high) ,and advanced (low and high).The Chinese teachers’ responsibilities and expectations not only require teaching the language but also bridging and experiencing Chinese culture and customs. There are many exciting and entertaining activities in Chinese classes, such as teaching Chinese geography, literature, customs, holidays, Chinese minorities, Chinese art crafts, Chinese cooking (making moon-cakes and dumplings, etc), Kung Fu, Chinese calligraphy and so on. We’d like students to engage in the study of various aspects of China.
