Students will have an opportunity to meet with one of their instructors every week to practice conversations and receive help with their course work.
Periodic field trips to Chinese communities nearby will be organized for students to practice what they have learned in classrooms and experience the Chinese American culture.
Each summer, interested students will have an opportunity to travel to China and enjoy the luxury of learning Chinese in an immersion environment. This program will allow students to have first-hand experiences with Chinese history and culture and the language used in real life. It will also help students enhance their real-world communication skills and gain a better understanding and appreciation of the Chinese history and culture. Depending on demand and resources, 1-year study abroad programs in China may also be arranged for students who have completed two years of Chinese coursework at F&M.
