First Year Chinese 1

Note

This course is offered regularly in the fall. It will NOT be offered during the summer of 2016.

Description

This introductory Chinese course aims at achieving both linguistic accuracy and discourse (conversational) competence in the Chinese language. You will be trained in all the four-language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. We stress vocabulary building, sentence patterns, and skills that will enable you to talk about simple topics of daily life and to read, and write short passages.  You will also be introduced to elements of the Chinese culture as it pertains to the language that native-speakers use in communicative settings.
