analysis of advantages and disadvantages in the process of ci development
Analysis of advantages and disadvantages in the process of CI development.

Advantages:

First only 10 students attended

Chinese courses at CI. Great efforts, advertisement in media and various activities have attracted a great number of people to CI.

The number of our students has increased reaching 120.

Disadvantages:

Teachers’ arrival on time is very important for CI students, as it is impossible to provide them with local Chinese teachers.

Last year we had 140 students. After Wushu teacher had left for China, the number of our students decreased dramatically amounting to 90, as another specialist arrived only 6 months later.

slide42

According to the previous graphics the students’ quantity is always unstable.

After the 1st semester we lose students, as they consider the language learning process to be complicated.
