This unit is designed to meet student needs to further develop their basic knowledge and skills for understanding, speaking, reading and writing Mandarin Chinese in a wide range of everyday situations. Eligible students are those who have: successfully completed introductory Mandarin units HHB031/AMB031 and HHB032/AMB032 at QUT, and those who have successfully completed equivalent Mandarin study elsewhere. Graduates from high schools who have completed Year 12 Mandarin should also enrol in this unit. (Students who have undergone primary and secondary education in China and Taiwan are not eligible for this unit. Students who cannot speak Mandarin Chinese but can read and write Chinese script are not eligible either. They can apply to do Mandarin speaking units cross-institutionally at UQ.)
Students need to expand their working knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and to further develop their macro-skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing after completing their first year elementary Mandarin units. This unit will provide learning activities to consolidate students' knowledge and command of the Mandarin Pinyin/Romanization system and at the same time more attention will be given to increasing students' competence in reading and writing Chinese characters. With progressive acquisition of the Chinese language, students will be further exposed to aspects and characteristics of Chinese culture.
The aim of this unit is to provide students with further knowledge and skills in carrying out basic communicative tasks in a wide range of everyday situations where Mandarin is used.
