University of Chester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Teaching takes place at the Parkgate Road Campus. By the end of the Chinese course you will have had the opportunity to develop all your language skills to a very high level, as well as studying a range of cultural and historical contexts. You will have had the chance to undertake exciting placements in China and to gain invaluable knowledge and experience of contemporary China. During the English Language course, you will study the fundamental structures and theoretical principles of English and language in general, and use them to understand and analyse spoken and written English discourse in context. This may include investigating sounds, word meanings, sentence structures, discourse analytical principles, child language acquisition, and language variation and change.

For Chinese, you will be assessed in all four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as your ability to research and analyse. You will do this in a variety of formats: essays, role-plays, presentations, summaries, debates, portfolios, discussion papers, translations, projects, dissertation and exams. For English Language, assessment varies widely to reflect different topics and skill sets. This includes on-line blog entries, seminar presentations, conversation and phonetic transcriptions, data collection, research and analysis, syntax trees, and short answer exercises. There are also traditional discussion essays and some formal written examinations.
