Spoken by 1.3 billion people, Chinese is the world’s most spoken first language. China also has one of the world’s most vibrant economies, and is a major trade partner of Australia.
With Asia’s continuing social and economic growth, an understanding of Chinese language and culture is increasingly important in global engagement.
This Chinese program from Curtin University is suitable for all students (previous study of Chinese is not required). Advanced classes are provided for students who have studied Chinese previously and specific units are offered for native speakers of the language.
