Languages & Cultures
The teaching of Chinese as a foreign language at UCCS began in 2012
When Yang Yang joined the department of Languages and Cultures. The Chinese language pedagogy which has been utilized focuses on two foundational methods. We employ 'authentic modern Chinese', and our teaching pedagogy engages in an effective and in true scenario drilling method.
Today, the teaching and learning of Chinese is entering a new era of economic and cultural globalization, and Chinese language is increasingly prevalent in the international academic discourse. To this end, the Chinese Language Program at UCCS has composed Chinese language curricula of entry level to intermediate courses based on the principle of 'authentic modern Chinese'. The Chinese language curriculum uses textbooks “Integrated Chinese” series which teaches the skills the learners need to communicate effectively in Chinese.
