Long-term Chinese language program

Including a full-time comprehensive Chinese language program and part-time practical Chinese language program, ICES provides free lectures to enrich foreign students’ understanding of Chinese culture.

1. Full-time courses

Full-time A/B courses
The full-time Chinese language A/B courses are the most popular Chinese language program at ICES with a ratio of about 70 percent of the total language-learning foreign students at ICES. This program can effectively improve the students’ comprehensive skills in various aspects including listening, speaking, reading and writing in a short time through the compact curriculum arrangement, the dense curriculum intensity and the systematic level setup. 

Textbooks
The elementary and intermediate courses for this program mainly use textbooks including the series of “Chinese Course”, “Spoken Chinese”, and “Chinese Listening” published by the Beijing Language and Culture University Press and “Families with children”. The advanced course mainly uses the textbook series of “Advanced Spoken Course”, “China Overview”, “News Listening Course” and “Road to Success”. In addition, some courses use the supplementary materials independently written by ICES so as to meet the requirements of students at different levels.

2. Part-time

a. Part-time C/D courses

Program introduction:
These courses adopt the Chinese language found in practical daily life as their main content to help students to be quickly integrated into life in China through relatively liberal curriculums and a large number of classroom exercises. The curriculums are divided into three times a week (on the mornings of Monday, Wednesday and Friday) for the C course and two times a week (on the afternoons of Tuesday and Thursday) for the D course.

Textbooks
The textbooks for these courses are “New Practical Chinese Reader” from Book 1 to Book 5, and one book for each semester. The practical learning contents can help the students to master the most commonly used words and grammar points in the Chinese language.

b. Part-time E course

Program introduction:
The part-time E course is mainly for those working in Shanghai. The teaching comprises practical Chinese language in business, involved in sectors that include economics, trade, finance and negotiation, and cultivates Chinese language communication skills in a business environment through a comprehensive training program which includes listening, speaking, reading and writing. 

Textbooks
This course adopts popular business Chinese textbooks including the “Win in China” series, “New Silk Road Advanced Quick Business Chinese” and “Road to Success: Intermediate Business Chinese Case Tutorial”. The contents take the basic business communication program as the mainline to allow learners to enlarge their vocabulary on the basis of learning the basic grammar. The contents involve many aspects including business and daily life expressions, visits, negotiations, claims, contract signing, recruitment, company management and corporate culture.
