About Goldclasses: At Goldsmiths, University of London we offer a range of subject-based masterclasses to give you a detailed insight of how teaching and learning is different at University level.

Developed and delivered alongside leading academics and research specialists, Goldclasses aim to stimulate enquiry, broaden subject knowledge and introduce students to a new way of academic thinking. Goldclasses offer radical, thought-provoking topics that showcase why Goldsmiths is at the forefront of cutting-edge research.

Information: Based on our popular joint undergraduate degree Mandarin classes, this sample lecture will provide you with a practical understanding of what Chinese Studies has to offer. In this taster beginner’s session, you will learn more about the unique writing system of the language, phonetics, useful daily expressions, as well as contemporary Chinese culture. All levels of Mandarin speakers are welcome. But Chinese Studies isn’t all about learning Mandarin! You will also get to experience some of our more popular workshops such as martial arts and calligraphy.
