Aims
This module aims to equip students linguistically and culturally to communicate successfully in Chinese, and help them to meet the requirements for CEFR B1- equivalence.

All the Chinese modules have been developed taking into account the QAA benchmark statements for a full or minor component in a language. QAA benchmark statements relate to the language component comprising at least one-third of the study total, resulting in students at the end of the relevant degree programme being at level C1. These Chinese modules make up less than one third of study and so the realistic minimum that would be achieved for a student starting at a beginner level in year 1 is CEFR B2, though students with some initial knowledge would be at C1.
Learning outcomes 
A Demonstrate that they can follow clearly spoken, straightforward short talks on familiar topics in the target language

B Demonstrate a general understanding of the main points in straightforward factual texts in the target language on subjects of personal or professional interest

C Use the target language to give a short prepared presentation on a very familiar area, answer clear questions, and give or seek personal opinions in an informal discussion

D Use the target language to write short, comprehensible connected texts on familiar subjects

Communicative language teaching involves a high level of interaction between teacher and students. Teaching and assessment will revolve around the setting and completion of specified language tasks.
