Aims of Minor

The aim of this minor program is to meet the professional language needs of students in various disciplines. In particular, it aims to enhance the productive language skills (written Chinese and Putonghua) of graduates who may need to work part of the time, or most of the time in Mainland China.  With the signing of CEPA and the changing economies of Hong Kong and the Mainland, it is expected there will be greater opportunities for career development in the Mainland for CityU students, and there will also be more frequent contact with Mainland business and industries.  To add to the advantage of a more Westernized curriculum and a more cosmopolitan perspective, Hong Kong students will need more formal training in the use of Chinese for professional purposes - a more advanced ability in speaking Putonghua and in written communication.
