Program Description

In summer 2020, XJTLU IS offering an online video series to give students a taste of what it is like to study Chinese with us.

Three videos have been provided by our excellent teachers to not only give you a chance to learn some Chinese but also experience our university environment, and explore some parts of Suzhou. The levels of our teaching videos include elementary, intermediate and advanced. Each video lasts 10-15 minutes. Most importantly, they are all free!

This video series is for you if you:

  • Want to have a taste of our Chinese courses to see if you want to start learning the language
  • Are interested in joining our summer school later, and want to see what it looks like
  • Have already studied some Chinese and want to learn something new

Teaching Materials and Style

All the video scripts/learning materials have been created or adapted by our wonderful teachers. These videos can guide you to some famous places in our university, so you can explore your future learning/living environment. The videos start with a dialogue, which can prepare you for real-life situations.
