Lens on China Workshop Series
The series consists of four workshops (6 hours), that will use Chinese movies as a learning resource for students whose Chinese proficiency has reached intermediate or advanced level.
This workshop series aims to:
- Further improve learners’ Chinese proficiency with a special focus on speaking skills such as rhythm, stress, pause, tone, intonation and more;
- Increase learners’ awareness of intercultural communication through extensive discussion on the chosen episodes from the movies;
- Utilize ChatGPT to create a cultural context in which learners can apply the speaking skills they previously gained to “the real roles” they possess.
