Learning objectives Upon successful completion of the module, the students should be able to • get familiar with the Chinese spoken language Pinyin system • can have a short small talk in Chinese on some of the most common everyday topics • learn the basics of reading and memorizing the most common Chinese characters Contents • Vocabulary and phrases from everyday conversations • Know how to introduce oneself by states one’s name, nationality, and language skills, etc. • Vocabulary and phrases from the hospitality industry • Culture elements will be introduced during the contact hours Chinese is the most spoken language in the world and one of the official languages of the UN. It is used officially in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore. It is also used in Malaysia and the business world of Southeast Asia to a large extent. The Chinese language has had a great impact on East Asian languages and cultures. Thousands of Chinese characters have been borrowed by the Japanese language, and about 65% of Korean words have their origin in Chinese. Contrary to what many people believe, Chinese is not that difficult to learn. For example, the grammar is simple, the verbs are not conjugated and most words are short – only one or two syllables. Learning the Chinese characters takes time, but the graphic writing system is extremely interesting. The art of writing characters, i.e. calligraphy, is itself one of the most esteemed art forms in East Asia. According to the latest language research made by the Chinese Ministry of Education in 2007, only 581 characters make up 80% of common Chinese texts. And if you know 934 characters, for whatever you might wish to read in Chinese, you can already recognize 90% of the characters.
