Below is information on a Continuing Ed Mandarin Course at Teachers College. It's a great price for a course that got great reviews. Thought some of you may be interested. Not only a chance to begin to learn an important language, but it's a great work-out for the brain. - GF
Course Info & Registration Link
The Community Language Program (CLP) is a unique and integral part of the TESOL and Applied Linguistics Programs at Teachers College, Columbia University. It provides quality and low-cost English and foreign language instruction to adult learners of diverse nationalities and backgrounds in the Columbia University and surrounding New York communities. We are now offering Chinese Beginner class and High Beginner class. Using a theme-based teaching approach, this course builds vocabulary and grammar structures upon each other in a spiral-up approach that helps students build a strong language foundation. Our story-centered design and activity-rich curriculum also prepares students for real life communication. Each class will be centered on a theme in order to centralize learning and functions associated with each particular topic. At the end of the course, students will be able to carry out many real-life tasks, and develop a deeper connection to the Chinese language and culture.
