Chinese Language Study at the University of Michigan

The 2007–2008 academic year is the 70th anniversary of the teaching of Chinese language at the University of Michigan. Chinese language courses (Mandarin dialect) are taught through the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures. We offer beginning through advanced levels, including a series of courses aimed at heritage learners, a number of topics courses geared towards pronunciation, using technology with Chinese language, and Business Chinese. Students with advanced language skill can also choose to enroll in graduate seminars, where most of the reading is in the vernacular.

The faculty of the Chinese Language Program are some of the leaders in the field of Chinese language teaching. They have authored many articles and textbooks on language teaching and are regularly called upon by colleagues at other universities to present papers and lectures regarding the methodology used at the University of Michigan.
