Mandarin is spoken by over 885 million people worldwide and is the official language of mainland China. In view of the dramatic increase in Canada’s relations with China, especially in the computer information and business fields, the ability to communicate in Mandarin is becoming an important asset for Canadians.

Moreover, UCFV is presently engaged in an important international project in China, featuring our Computer Information Systems program, with further programs projected for the future. Our courses in Mandarin Chinese will teach students skills in Mandarin phonetics, tones, and pronunciation, and enable them to conduct conversations in Mandarin and help develop an awareness of Chinese cultures, social values, and customs.

MAND 101 and MAND 102 are not appropriate for students with training or background in Chinese (Mandarin or other dialects).
