Chinese Language Curriculum

China Summer Camp for High School Students- Main Curriculum 

  • 200 characters will be enough to survive at a basic level on a day to day basis – introduce yourself, give directions to a taxi driver, order basic food and drink
  • 800 characters will allow you to hold basic conversations in Chinese, talk about the weather, your likes and dislikes, perform day to day tasks such as doing your shopping and almost effortlessly getting around town
  •  1500 characters will allow you to be able to read a newspaper without fully understanding all the characters but allowing you to get a good grip on the context of the articles
  • 2500 – 3500 characters puts you at roughly the same level as a local Chinese high-school graduate. You will be able to fully read and understand newspapers and television programs, and be able to hold a detailed conversation on a variety of topics
  • 4500 – 5500 characters puts you at roughly the same level as a local Chinese University graduate. At this level, you could be expected to operate fluently within any situation, both professional and private, translate high-level documents and engage in conversations at all levels and for all intents and purposes operate as a well-educated “local”
  •  20,000 – 30,000 characters puts you within a very small group of linguistic academic experts who command a very rare knowledge of all obscure vocabulary and subtleties contained within the Mandarin Chinese language. Not many people, foreign or local, ever reach this level – but there’s no harm in trying
