Once again Mandarin Centers has partnered with the Language Center of the Loyola University of Andalusia (Spain) to add specific Mandarin Chinese courses to its extensive language training offerings.
Loyola University, always committed to dialogue and different cultures, has always aspired to be recognized for its academic and research excellence, to create knowledge about the problems and needs of today’s world, and to train men and women committed to the development of a more just and sustainable society.
With their firm commitment to Mandarin Chinese language training, they offer their students the opportunity to complete their training in a language that is becoming more and more common in the business world. China’s geopolitical position and the development and expansion of its companies all over the world have made the mastery of Chinese a necessity in an interconnected world.
The clear international vocation of Loyola University is further enhanced by the fact that it is part of the International, the group of universities founded by the Society of Jesuits throughout the world. In Latin America alone there are more than 25 member universities in the main countries: Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, etc. (https://iaju.org/region/AUSJAL ).
These training programs can be attended by all students enrolled at Loyola Andalucía University, both in Cordoba and Seville.
The Chinese program taught at Loyola Andalucía University takes place during an academic year in which students not only learn the language in depth, but also delve into the culture and history of China, which are essential elements for understanding and gaining a global perspective of the language.
In terms of content, students will start at HSK1 level (equivalent to level A1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). As Mandarin Centers is an official examination center recognized by Hanban, students will have the guarantee that the program follows the official Chinese curriculum designed by the Confucius Institute and that at the end of the program they will have the opportunity to certify the corresponding official Chinese level.
Last year the students participating in this program already had the opportunity to certify the official HSK1 level in the Official Convocation that was held at Mandarin Centers Seville, obtaining a 100% pass rate.
