Welcome you to learning Chinese at China Agricultural University!
It is necessary for the international students to master the skills of the Chinese language in order to communicate fluently with Chinese people or understand properly the meanings of the textbooks or materials printed in Chinese version during their further professional study or research work in China. The purpose of the Chinese Language Teaching Program (CLTP) of China Agricultural University(CAU) is to give opportunities for the international students, who will pursue their degrees in China or conduct the work using Mandarin in future, to learn Chinese language systematically.
With the experienced teachers, who teach Chinese as a foreign language have been employed, the international students who study at CLTP may begin their language study from either zero beginning or intermediate lever according to their Chinese language proficiency. There are no less than 22 hours a week while 32 weeks consist of one academic year. Intensive Chinese, Listening , Speaking, Reading & Writing etc. are the key subjects while other various subjects such as Chinese Panorama, Agricultural Chinese, Taiji etc. are chosen optionally as well.
Apart from studying the regular Chinese language courses, we also organize international students to take part in some out-door activities such as educational visits, sight-seeing etc. so that the students can better understand Chinese culture and history (Some activities fees maybe have to be paid by students themselves in terms of different situation).
Since the year of 2010, more than 140 students have taken level 4 or above of the State Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) and over 80% among them successfully obtained the qualified certificates.
CLTP is approved by CAU officially to undertake the task of the Chinese Teaching for the Chinese Governmental Scholarship students who having been enrolled by CAU. We do welcome both scholarship students and self-support international students to study Chinese language through CLTP.
