Subject Area: Chinese Studies

This course is open to students who have acquired a basic level of spoken Chinese and a working knowledge of up to six hundred characters in their first year of study, as well as for those students who enter the Chinese language program with an equivalent knowledge of Chinese characters. In this course, you will improve your Chinese skills in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing, and will make significant gains in the acquisition of vocabulary and grammar. Work in the language laboratory or on the Internet is coordinated with class work in lectures and tutorials.

This course is divided into two groups: Group A for “non-background speakers” and Group B for “background speakers” (student who come from an environment where Chinese, whether Mandarin, Cantonese or any other dialect, is or has been used).
