Course Description:
 This course is comparable to a first-year college course in Mandarin Chinese. Students are expected to achieve a level of language proficiency in the intermediate range or beyond. The course engages students in an exploration of the culture of the Chinese-speaking world and provides them with ongoing and varied opportunities to develop and hone their language skills across three communicative modes: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational. In doing so, they develop the necessary knowledge of the Chinese language, including pronunciation vocabulary, idiomatic expressions, grammatical structures, and written characters.
