Chinese courses are designed to develop a basic competency in Chinese speaking, listening, reading, and writing; an appreciation for cultural diversity; and the application of conversational Chinese to work and life roles.
Students with two years of high school Chinese are generally prepared for beginning courses, while students with three to four years of high school Chinese are generally ready to enter intermediate courses. See
Chinese Courses and Descriptions for information on enrolling for specific course levels.
Students who enroll in Chinese courses fulfill the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum requirements as well as graduation requirements.
