TII Mandarin Chinese Language Program

TII Mandarin Chinese Language Program

Why should you learn Chinese? Chinese is the language spoken by the largest population in the world, both in the past and today. Chinese is one of the oldest languages still in use, and its basic components have changed little in the past 3,500 years. It is an intriguing language full of stories from the time of its creation as well as a language keeping abreast with the times.

Mastering Chinese will give you an in-depth understanding of China, the second largest economy in the world and, most likely, the largest in a decade. And the Chinese language is key to appreciating its tradition and culture, which are completely different from yours. Understanding Chinese characters, a script system functioning as the building blocks of Chinese writing, opens a window into the Chinese culture. We are also well aware that our adult students are interested in developing communication skills. In our courses, you learn how to communicate in Mandarin as well as how to recognize and write characters. You start from learning pinyin, the system of Romanization which helps you pronounce words and find their meaning in a dictionary, either online or in print.
