EASY STEP TO CHINESE 1-7
Easy Step to Chinese will help students establish a solid foundation of Mandarin in terms of characters, words, sentences, and grammar through natural and gradual integration of language, themes, and culture. The simultaneous development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing is especially emphasized. The ultimate aim is to help students develop communication skills in Mandarin in real-life situations and express their viewpoints appropriately, precisely, logically, and coherently.
At CAMST, Grade 8 and Grade 9 students have this course compulsory, one hour per week.
HSK STANDARD COURSE 1-6
To help our learners to attend and pass the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK), an international standardized test of Chinese language proficiency assesses non-native Chinese speakers’ abilities in using the Chinese language in their daily, academic, and professional lives. HSK consists of six levels, namely HSK (level I), HSK (level II), HSK (level III), HSK (level IV), HSK (level V), and HSK (level VI) (from http://www.chinesetest.cn). HSK test has already a worldwide used standard for the learners who apply to study in China.
At CAMST, for those students who completed the Easy Step to Chinese, four hours per week course aims to help students prepare for the Chinese proficiency test. Students can use Chinese directly and straightforwardly, applying it in a basic fashion to their daily lives.
