Malay/ Mandarin Communication

The Mandarin course provides an opportunity for the students to acquire better speaking skills in Mandarin with the emphasis on natural, colloquial usage.

It is designed to develop and reinforce language skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing as it relates to everyday life situations. New vocabulary and idiomatic phrases will be emphasized and the student will hold conversations in Mandarin during each class.

The objectives are to master the Mandarin phonetic system (pinyin and tones) with satisfactory pronunciation and to understand the construction of commonly used Chinese Characters (both simplified and traditional).

The students will also be able to understand and use correctly basic Chinese grammar and sentence structures and build up essential vocabulary.
