The study of Chinese contributes to the overall education of learners, particularly in the areas of communication, intercultural understanding and general knowledge

Through studying Chinese, learners gain access to Chinese-speaking communities in China and across the world, including Australia. The ability to communicate in Chinese will (in conjunction with other skills acquired in the study of this course) provide learners with enhanced vocational opportunities and the possibility to apply Chinese culture and language skills to work, further study, training or personal interests. This course builds on Chinese - Foundation and provides a pathway to the study of Chinese at university level. This course teaches Modern Standard Chinese, also known as Mandarin, Putonghua and Guoyu.
