Chinese courses at Camosun are offered at a slower pace (4 hours/week) and course credits are transferable to most B.C. universities. Upon completion of Chinese 100 and 101, students will master Mandarin sounds (pin yin), understand basic grammatical structures and hold basic conversations in Chinese. They will also recognize and write about 300-400 Chinese characters. Upon completion of 200/201, students will be able to describe and discuss certain topics in Chinese, read and write short passages and recognize and write about 800-1000 Chinese characters.
"I would most definitely recommend a fellow student to take this course, the instruction is excellent and the textbooks are very helpful."
"I learned a lot in this class, whether you take this class for travelling, working in China or for business, or for whatever reason, you will come out of this class with the skills you need!"

Best Stage Performance
The Humanities Department is pleased to announce that Chinese language student, Luke Kowalski, won the "Best Stage Performance" category at the Chinese language singing competition in Vancouver. The competition features students from Camosun College, UVic, UBC and SFU.
Luke started learning Chinese this fall and he is in Chinese 100. He takes his study of Chinese seriously and participates in all class activities with great enthusiasm. He was the class "captain" for the Chinese singing group and helped his classmates with their singing practice prior to the preliminary competition.
Luke and one other student won 2nd and 3rd place in the preliminary singing contest at UVic and they went to Vancouver (representing Vancouver Island) for the final contest.
