So judging by what you guys wrote there is no HSK requirement for Chuanda's Chinese program? Or if there is, they offer some sort of training program?
Also, do the western students have their own classes separately from i.e. japanese who already know how to write all the characters and thus should study much faster?
I was wondering if the Chinese language degree starts from a scratchand if I am supposed to know any Chinese before starting it?
I'm really divided between choosing Chengdu, Kunming or Beijing to study the language. Beijing probably has the best education (BLCU) and they speak clear putonghua. Chengdu on the other hand doesn't have as many foreigners as Beijing, it's a bit more traditional and has a lot warmer climate, no? And Kunming has awesome climate, even less western influence but I'm no sure about the Yunnan University's quality of teaching.
Hello, I'd like to study undergraduate degree of Chinese in Chengdu but there are a couple of things I need to ask before choosing which city/uni to study in.
First, does the fact that people speak sichuanhua there affect studying mandarin negatively? Do people still learn mandarin?
Second, which university is the best choice? Obviously Sichuan University is the most famous one, but I've heard that some other unis might be even better choice due to smaller classes, fewer foreigners to help the immersion and so on.
Third, is it possible to get part time job teaching english even if I'm not a native English speaker? I'm scandinavian and I speak English somewhat well and from what I've understood the level of native Chinese who teach English really isn't that great so... Is it possible for me to get a part time job if I happen to need one?
Are you serious with that 95% thing or just kidding? I'm not a native speaker of English so my sarcasm detectors aren't that good. If most of the people quit the program before finishing then the program must be horribly difficult.
Oh well I guess I'll just go study in Scotland or something. Maybe studying only Chinese will not give too great career prospects.
Hello everyone. I was wondering if here are some people who know about Sichuan University? I want to get my undergraduate degree in China and I'm really considering going into Sichuan University.
Is the level of education good there? And is it possible to work part time while in university?
