  • Overview

    This course provides an intermediate level program in Chinese language (Mandarin) study for background speakers (from an environment where Chinese, whether Mandarin, Cantonese or any other dialect is or has been used). It is open to students who have acquired a basic level of spoken Chinese and a working knowledge of no less than six hundred characters in their first year of study, or 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. In addition, you will gain some knowledge in Chinese culture and history. Work on the Internet is coordinated with class work in lectures and tutorials.
