Summer Courses 2013

We are going to offer a range of Chinese courses in our summer semester this year.

For complete beginners with little or no knowledge of Chinese language, we are offering a 5-week Intensive Chinese Beginners Course running on Mondays and Thursday from 8th July to 8th August.

If you are interested in Chinese characters, you can join our Chinese character introductory course running on Thursdays from 11th July for 5 weeks.

And to help ensure that earlier learning is not lost over the summer months we are offering Consolidation/Revision groups at two levels in July and August as well.
