Description

The Chinese A1.1 course is suitable for students with no previous knowledge of the Chinese language. The course teaches basic knowledge of Chinese language and writing.

The basic knowledge of Chinese grammar, vocabulary (and writing) is taught through everyday conversations and situations (welcome and introduction, nationality and language, addresses and numbers). The following topics are covered in the development of word fields: traveling in China, introduction of persons to each other (name, nationality, profession or course of study, place of origin, family), hobbies/interests, and time. An important part of the course is the learning of everyday Chinese culture. The grammar focus is on learning the phonetic transcription (pin Yin), basic knowledge of Chinese characters, pronunciation, basic vocabulary and sentence formation (sentences, questions of questions, prompts). Oral communication is at the center of instruction. In an active and pleasant teaching environment, the participants will develop a feeling for the Chinese language within a semester, thereby developing self-awareness in real communicative situations.

This course provides a basis for the participants to be able to continue with course guidance or through self study.

Description

The Chinese A1.2 course is suitable for participants who have successfully completed the A1.1 course and would like to expand their knowledge.
In this course the students learn the corresponding vocabulary, phrases and grammatical structures based on the topics "Chinese food culture" and "family".
Upon successful completion of the advanced course, participants can confidently order, buy and pay in Chinese in the restaurant. We will also learn how to arrange the time and place of a meeting with friends.
In contrast to the beginner's course, the advanced course will use Chinese script - the learning of characters - as well as pronunciation and free communication.
The participants will learn the systematics of the characters and practice reading and writing the characters of the learning units. At the same time, participants will learn the input method, which enables them to write Chinese characters on the computer.
Furthermore, contents and procedures of the Chinese Language Examination (HSK) will be discussed. On this basis we will prepare for the HSK 1 exam.
