This course is for background speakers at the Intermediate Level. It is open to students who have grown up in a family or environment where Mandarin or any Chinese dialects have been used in daily situations. It requires a reasonable level of spoken Chinese and a working knowledge of no less than 750 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. You will also be introduced to the social, cultural and historical knowledge that are related to the topics in the textbook. In addition to daily discourse and abstract ideas, topics that require critical thinking and higher language integration are woven into this level of language study.
