This course is designed for students who have acquired a basic level of spoken Chinese (Mandarin) and a working knowledge of up to six hundred simplified 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. It targets students who do not come from a Chinese cultural and language (or dialect) background. In this course, you will improve your Chinese skills in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. You will also be introduced to aspects of Chinese history, culture, politics, and society relevant to given texts in Chinese in language acquisition.
