Language: Chinese

The College

Christopher Robinson participates in the National Day on Writing as he practices writing Chinese characters on a SmartBoard.

While encountering anything foreign to one’s upbringing is enriching, the study of Chinese - an uninflected modern language, without conjugations, declensions, or tenses, but with tonal distinctions for lexical meanings, and with a writing system that utilizes imagistic graphs rather than an alphabet or a syllabary - has proven to be especially so. Our language program seeks to provide you with an infrastructure of the Chinese language that will help you make sense of the repetitive oral drills, and will help you take off in your fluency once you get into a Chinese speaking environment.
