Goal

With the coming of the 21st century the global core market is trending from the USA to China. Even though the USA and the European Union countries are important actors in the world scene, they have to compete with other countries, most of all--- China. Learning Chinese is therefore a very important tool to interact with and explore the huge beneficial market. More than 1.3 billion people speak Chinese and more than 30 million foreigners learn Chinese. So far there have been two thousand five hundred universities in 100 countries teaching Chinese. This tide of learning Chinese is incredibly tremendous.
The International Cooperation Center of CUST is very enthusiastic about cooperating with its partner schools to establish reciprocal exchange programs. The Language Center is now offering Chinese courses operated by the Chinese Language Division.

Course Profile

Courses are offered from beginners to advanced based on the Chinese level of the individual student. Classes are conducted in small sizes to ensure that the listening, speaking, reading and writing ability of each member can improve quickly. Students can learn Chinese based on a variety of interesting subjects. They can also receive intensive help in preparing for TOCFL (Test of Chinese as  Foreign Language) or HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi or the Chinese Proficiency Test) according to their preference. Our Mandarin courses are fun and effective being taught by experienced and well-trained teachers.
