2014 Fall Non-Credit Courses

August 8th, 2014, 11:34 am

Mandarin Chinese is the standard and most widely spoken dialect of the Chinese language. As such, Mandarin Chinese is essential for Americans interested in doing business, vacationing, or studying in China. As Chinese businesses, tourists, and scholars travel to the United States in growing numbers, Americans are also finding Mandarin Chinese very useful here at home.

Join us for practical and enjoyable courses in Mandarin Chinese. All courses meet one session per week and are held in the Confucius Institute in Suite 129 at the IUPUI Campus, except as noted. Parking is the responsibility of the student.
