Scholarships are available to study intensive Chinese or Japanese at
Washington University in St. Louis this Summer with the ALLEX Foundation:
The WUSTL-ALLEX Intensive Chinese and Japanese Institute will offer
intensive beginning level classes in Japanese and Mandarin Chinese at
Washington University in St. Louis for seven weeks this summer. Each class
meets for 2 hours per day, 5 days a week for 7 weeks. The course is
intensive and requires 3-5 hours of mandatory self-managed study per day.
This program is designed to train students to speak and listen to Chinese
or Japanese, and to introduce students to reading and writing the language.
At the end of the course students will be expected to perform in all four
skills—speaking, listening, reading and writing—at a basic level of
proficiency. Students will not only learn to speak the language; they will
also develop an understanding of Chinese or Japanese interpersonal
behavior. The ultimate goal is to teach students not just to speak Chinese
or Japanese, but to function successfully in Chinese or Japanese culture—to
present yourself as an intelligent person in the culture using the
language. Students will learn to speak and perform correctly in a variety
of social situations.
Scholarships are available.
