Introduction of Courses (please refer to the NCTU Course Selection System for details)
Our courses range from introductory to advanced levels. Each level comprises one or more courses which are 36 hours each. The majority of courses fall into two series. The “Everyday Chinese” series uses Far East Everyday Chinese books published by the Far East Book Co., Ltd, while the “Chinese” series uses Practical Audio-Visual Chinese books published by Cheng-Chung Book Co., Ltd.
◎ Introductory Level (Introductory Everyday Chinese I~III, Introductory Chinese I~III and Introductory Chinese Conversation I~II)
This level is for learners with little or no prior knowledge of Chinese. On completion learners will be able to express themselves simply and conduct basic conversations using simple words and sentences. In addition, an etymological approach for teaching vocabulary is adopted to foster learners’ basic reading and writing proficiency, with the aim of laying a solid foundation for further learning. Three series of courses are offered regularly, as follows:
1.
Introductory Everyday Chinese series: The course material includes the first half of Book 1 of Far East Everyday Chinese. The series at this level comprises three courses (total 108 class hours), during which learners are expected to learn about 230 Chinese characters, 305 words and phrases, and 60 grammatical rules.
2. Introductory Chinese series: The course material includes Book 1 of Practical Audio-Visual Chinese. The series at this level comprises three courses (total 108 class hours), during which learners are expected to learn about 320 Chinese characters, 450 words and phrases, and 50 grammatical rules.

◎ Elementary Level (Elementary Chinese I~II, Elementary Chinese Conversation I~II and Elementary Chinese Listening and Discussion)
This level focuses on useful situational conversations for daily communication. Extensive in-class drilling exercises help learners develop the ability to respond naturally in Chinese. Basic grammar concepts are taught to enhance learners’ ability to effectively conduct conversations using simple Chinese. Three series of courses are offered regularly, as follows:

◎ Basic Chinese (Basic Chinese I~II)
This level adopts an integrated approach to listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Vocabulary for conversation is expanded and simple linguistic rules for written Chinese are also introduced. The objective is to enable learners to deal with various situations in daily life, give an account of facts and events, describe their feelings and express their opinions, as well as conduct superficial culture exchange. Two series of courses are offered regularly, as follows:
Basic Chinese series: The course material includes Book 3 of Practical Audio-Visual Chinese. The series at this level comprises two courses (total 72 class hours), during which learners are expected to learn about 600 Chinese characters, 1200 words and phrases, and 140 grammatical rules.
 
◎ Intermediate & Up (Intermediate Chinese I~II and High-Intermediate Chinese I~II)
The course contents gradually expand from everyday topics to current affairs, social issues, history, culture and economy. While expanding the vocabulary repertoire, learners not only learn how to express their opinions and feelings more accurately but also gain further understanding about the Chinese world view and cultural attitudes. Three courses are offered regularly, as follows:
1.
Intermediate Chinese series: The course material includes Book 4 of Practical Audio-Visual Chinese. The series at this level comprises two courses (total 72 class hours), during which learners are expected to learn about 625 Chinese characters, 1250 words and expressions, and 120 grammatical rules.
2. High-Intermediate Chinese series: The course material includes Book 5 of Practical Audio-Visual Chinese. The series at this level comprises two courses (total 72 class hours), during which learners are expected to learn about 667 Chinese characters and 91 grammatical rules.
 
◎ Elective Courses (Taiwan Today, Technical Chinese, Business Chinese, Advanced Chinese Reading, Chinese Current Issues, Film and Chinese Culture and Radio Plays.)
In addition to the courses regularly offered at the different levels, theme-based elective courses are available from time to time. For example,
1.
Taiwan Today: An intermediate course which introduces Taiwanese culture and contemporary Taiwanese society.
2. High-intermediate to advanced courses which are entirely taught in Chinese include such courses as Technical Chinese, Business Chinese, Advanced Chinese Reading, Chinese Current Issues, and Film and Chinese Culture. The range of courses is designed to meet the needs of learners with different backgrounds. Through further training of reading and speaking abilities, the objective is to “upgrade” learners’ Chinese proficiency level from “Chinese for daily conversation” to “Chinese for in-depth communication,” with the hope to enable learners to use Chinese appropriately in their profession or have in-depth discussions about various issues with local people.
3. Radio Plays: This course focuses on verbal communication skills.
