the course schedule for Chinese and all languages
General Chinese courses
Courses range from beginner to advanced levels. The main purpose is to develop comprehensive language skills — listening, speaking, reading, and writing — and to achieve levels of proficiency as defined in the United Nations Language Framework.
Specialized Chinese courses
Courses strengthen skills in such areas as conversation, reading & writing, grammar & vocabulary, listening and pronunciation. We also offer courses that explore such topics as UN Sustainable Development Goals and Using Gender-inclusive Language. We also offer a course that helps learners prepare for the UN Language Proficiency Exam (Chinese)
General courses are typically organized in 10-week terms (3 hours per week). Specialized courses vary in length.
We follow a continuous evaluation system that takes various types of assessments into consideration.
