CLANG 2501 Mandarin Chinese III

Chinese III is designed for students who have taken Chinese II. Students who have had prior exposure to Chinese language are welcome to join the class, and a placement test will be required. This course focuses on how to use the language and how to use it appropriately. Cultural elements will be introduced to help students understand the usage of the language. Throughout the semester students will practice and develop four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. They will develop skills to produce and understand an ever-growing number of sentences in Chinese. Besides the four language skills, training on using a Chinese dictionary and Chinese typing system will be introduced. These two skills will empower them to continue studying Chinese outside the classroom.
