About Chinese Courses at Toronto Metropolitan
Chinese courses at Toronto Metropolitan focus on teaching basic vocabulary, sentence structure, and pronunciation of standard Mandarin Chinese. Designed for practicality, these courses have two main goals: overcoming psychological fears about learning Chinese, and gaining the confidence required to speak Mandarin. Although students are encouraged to read and write Chinese characters from the first day of classes, the focus of the courses is on practical communicative skills in standard Chinese. Simplified characters will be taught and tested throughout each course, and at higher levels, traditional characters are introduced for recognition. In each course, oral presentations are emphasized.
These degree-credit Chinese courses are professionally related elective courses for the Global Management Studies major within the Bachelor of Commerce program at the Ted Rogers School of Management at Toronto Metropolitan University. Degree-credit Chinese courses are offered through The Chang School to suit the busy lifestyles of adult learners. To choose an appropriate course level, students are advised to consult the guidelines on the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures website.
All students must take an interview/placement assessment before enrolling in this course. New students who do not have a Toronto Metropolitan Student Number should Create a Student Profile and obtain a student number before completing the assessment.
