CHNS3204

Intermed Chinese

This course is designed for students who have successfully completed a rigorous one-year college course in spoken and written Mandarin Chinese, or its equivalent. While many of the linguistic tasks students will learn to handle are similar to those of Level I, the level of language required to carry out these tasks is more advanced. In this course, students will be required to comprehend and produce paragraph-level Chinese.

Rigorous practice of spoken and written Chinese in complex communicative activities will be complemented by intensive drills to fine-tune pronunciation, expand vocabulary, and internalize more complex grammatical constructions. Students will also do intensive reading of expository writings on a variety of cultural topics. This course is conducted in Mandarin Chinese.
