Why study Chinese?
The Chinese have created one of the great civilisations of the world. Their contributions to human society, at all levels, rival those of any other nation. Their country is rapidly gaining in contemporary political and economic importance and, reflecting this fact, contacts with Australia are expanding in all fields. It is therefore important for Australians to have a greater understanding of the Chinese people and their society and culture. The study of Chinese language is a vital part of that understanding.
In practice, students study Chinese for a variety of reasons. Some have a general interest in languages and wish to study an Asian language at tertiary level. Others see the study of the language as part of their work in other disciplines such as Asian Studies or International Relations. Their goal is to use their knowledge of Chinese as a key to understanding a particular aspect of Chinese society.
