This fall, for the first time ever North Island College will offer Chinese language courses, giving Comox Valley residents access to the most widely-spoken language on the planet.
Two Chinese-Mandarin courses join Spanish and French as international languages available at NIC.
NIC will offer two levels of instruction. Introduction to Chinese 1, which starts in September and designed for beginners.
Introduction to Chinese 2 starts in January. It introduces more Chinese expressions and grammar, as well as approximately 200 Chinese characters in simplified form.
