Chinese Lessons for UNSW Staff
On 18 August 2016, the UNSW Confucius Institute launched its new program “Beginners Chinese for Business and Travel”, offering free weekly Chinese lessons to UNSW Staff. Members of various faculties and departments across the university attended the class.
With close relations between Australia and China continuing to flourish both within UNSW and at large, greater interest in learning the Chinese language has emerged. In response to this growing demand, the Confucius Institute has designed a ten-week curriculum which, in addition to developing basic language proficiency, is tailored to help facilitate business exchanges and promote better cross-cultural communication.
Staff members who attended the first lesson expressed positive feedback and enthusiasm for the course’s proposed content that specifically targets practical application.
