SUNY ORANGE TO OFFER PAIR OF MANDARIN CHINESE CLASSES THIS SPRING

12/14/2010

Non-Credit Courses Begin in January, Focus on Beginning and Intermediate Understanding of Language

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange’s Continuing and Professional Education Department is offering two Mandarin Chinese language classes, one each designed for beginning and intermediate learners, at its Middletown campus this spring.

The non-credit courses, which meet once per week for 10 weeks, will focus on spoken Chinese with discussions and multimedia presentations on culture and history, as well as an introduction to written Chinese. The goal of both courses is to introduce the Chinese language as career enrichment, for travel, or as a possible foreign language option for high school and college students.

The introductory course “Learn to Speak Mandarin Chinese” begins on Jan. 26 and will be held Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. through April 6. No prior knowledge of Chinese is required. “Intermediate Mandarin Chinese” will start on Jan. 24 and convene from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. each Monday through April 4. This course requires completion of the beginner’s course or an understanding of the basics of the Chinese language.

Enrollment cost is $125 per student. For information, contact the College’s Continuing and Professional Education Department at 341-4890 or visit www.sunyorange.edu/ce.
