About the Course:

Welcome to Shanghainese Decal!

This course is an introduction to Shanghainese language and culture.

Students might want to take this course because:

  • Shanghai is the economic center of mainland China, and there are millions of opportunities one can explore there. Thus knowing how to communicate with local Shanghainese people can be extremely helpful.
  • Shanghai is hosting the World Expo this year. This course will better prepare you for your trip to Shanghai.
  • Shanghainese is one of the centers of traditional cultural heritage. This course provides an opportunity for those who want to explore traditional Chinese culture and who want to maintain their cultural heritage.
  • Students might simply want to learn another language!
