Language Resource Lab
All university transfer courses in Mandarin Chinese consist weekly of three hours of lecture, one hour of conversation, and assignments in the multimedia lab on a drop-in basis (involving approximately 45-minutes).
Students with a competence in the language beyond the level of the course in which they are registered will be required to withdraw. For example, native speakers of Mandarin and/or other Chinese dialects and those who have taken Mandarin courses in high school are not allowed in the first year courses. Students with some knowledge of Chinese must consult with the instructor for placement. University rules governing such students differ within departments, but the Languages Department has correspondence dealing with matters relevant to credit transfer and point of entry. In order to avoid misunderstanding, students are invited to discuss these problems with the Department prior to enrolment.
For assistance in determining what level of Chinese to register in, please check out the Chinese Language Registration Chart (.pdf). Students who are not sure of their language level must consult the Chinese instructor, Tong Chow or 604.986.1911 local 2423.
