MCUMI opened a free short-term Chinese course at SVSU for faculty and staff members and students to promote Chinese culture and language. There are two periods of Chinese course, six weeks per period with 10 classes each. The 1st period began on January 21 with 125 students. This course has earned a good reputation from the faculty and staff members and students. The 2nd period will start on March 14 (Monday), with registration open now. The teaching material of the Chinese course, which includes Chinese Culture and practical conversation in Chinese, is edited by the 2nd-year students in the TCFL Master’s Program under the instruction of MCU faculty members. There are four sections including listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students are really impressed with the interesting teaching method and abundant content.
