Adding Chinese to your language set enhances your resume and provides the necessary skills to develop relationships on a local, national and international scale.

First- and second-year Chinese language courses are delivered online throughout the year. Refer to the OSU Ecampus Schedule of Classes for current schedule information.

The Ecampus schedule of classes includes available courses for the current term and up to three future terms. Class offerings are continually updated and may be added, removed or rescheduled without notice. Check back frequently for current information.

New class offered Summer term: WLC 331 - Chinese Culture I. Learn about the language, philosophy. art and more.

Students who complete first year of Chinese will be able to:

  • Communicate ideas effectively and appropriately through speaking, listening, reading and writing.
  • Respond meaningfully to others by articulating clearly and with appropriate accent and tones.
  • Apply the knowledge to communicate with other native-born Chinese speakers.

Students will interact with their classmates through online discussion boards and interactive content to gain competency communicating in Chinese.
