Second Year Chinese 1


This course is offered regularly in the fall.


CHIN 0003 is the continuation of the first-year Chinese. The goal of the course is to develop and advance the students' communicative competence in all four aspects of language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students will learn about 300 new characters and be able to talk about topics such as school life, restaurant, shopping, relationship and internet etc. using more sophisticated vocabulary and complex sentence patterns. Students will do role-plays and perform tasks which simulate real life situations. Authentic materials will be used to enrich students’ cultural knowledge and experience.
