Chinese

This introductory sequence of courses offers students beginning steps into the language, which may be followed by study abroad, teaching English, or business endeavors in China. The four courses count towards a minor in Asian Studies. Students will be able to practice their new language skills with Chinese friends on campus and enhance their multicultural experience at Wesleyan.
