Interested in Studying Chinese or Japanese? SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE!!!

Article *
ALLEX partners with Washington University in St. Louis to offer the nation’s premier intensive language program for students who are serious about Chinese and Japanese language proficiency.

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.
