This course is designed to focus primarily on oral skills, but will utilize various tasks and projects to strengthen all four skills that are essential in most formal and informal conversations and conferences on political and social topics in contemporary China.

Please note that this course also has a hybrid online component.

A textbook will be used to provide students with new vocabulary, grammar and key cultural topics, but the format and content of the textbook will not strictly be followed. Authentic up-to-date audio materials or newspaper articles, provided by both the instructor and the students, will be used to help supplement the textbook and to keep students up-to-date about China.

Weekly objectives and content will be posted on the course site.
