Chinese 3B HMC320



The University of Tasmania is excited to partner with Macquarie University for the teaching of our German major. Macquarie University is one of Australia’s leading universities in the study of languages.

This advanced Chinese language unit will be taught online via our partnership with Macquarie University. To do this please enrol in HMC320 via UTAS eStudent, and then we will contact you with details about how to access the equivalent unit at Macquarie University.


HMC320 is the continuation of HMC319. This is a workshop style, participatory language unit. The unit includes 1) discussions regarding grammar and 2) student and teacher-led exercises in speaking and listening, reading and writing. This unit builds on your previous study of Chinese in HMC101, 102, 219, 220 and 319 to advance your competency in reading, writing and speaking Mandarin Chinese.
