The Chinese Program at Bard College is housed within the Asian Studies Program and the Foreign Languages Cultures and Literature Program. It aims to give students, both majors and non-majors, a solid training in spoken and written Chinese language, and an introduction to critical approaches to a broad range of Chinese culture, including classical and modern literature, Chinese history, philosophy, visual arts, film, and popular culture.

Chinese Tutoring at Bard
From the Tutors
Chinese tutoring is conducted at the Language Center, usually with two to three people as a group, with the goal of improving oral communication skills. You will speak in Chinese throughout the coaching process. We sometimes have lantern riddles to help you understand the meaning of Chinese characters. Sometimes we watch Chinese cross-talks related to topics and do role play and simulation exercises.
