They will also enhance their Chinese Mandarin listening and speaking skills such as pronunciations and intonations. The students will learn more in-depth Chinese reading and writing strategies and skills. Their Chinese reading abilities and efficiency will be greatly improved and they will be able to write in Chinese in various formats such as journal, letter, invitation, and essay. The students’ knowledge and skills in writing simplified Chinese characters will also be enriched and fortified.
