Course Syllabus

Abstract

“Second foreign language (Chinese)” is a two year course delivered in English for the second-year and third-year students. The material is given sequentially according to the degree of increasing complexity. Depending on the performance of the group, the rate at which students master the material may vary. If the group learns the material faster than the program, the teacher can give additional materials for mastering at home and in the classroom (materials from other teaching and reference books, adapted texts for home reading or texts from the Internet). If the group masters the material more slowly than envisaged in the program, a delay in the presentation of the material is allowed in order to more deeply study aspects that cause difficulties for students. In modular 4 the course is implemented remotely using LMS and online platforms (for example, Zoom, Discord, Skype, MS teams).
