East Asian Languages & Cultures | Third-Year Chinese I
C301 | 1649 | Tba

This course, conducted entirely in Chinese, is learner_centered,
content_based, and proficiency_driven.  It seeks to further develop
students' overall language proficiency through extensive reading of modern
expository texts.  Students will have opportunities to narrate personal
experience, discuss current social problems, and explore cultural issues.
The class meets five hours a week: two one_hour interactive lectures and
three one_hour drills.  Both lectures and drills aim at vocabulary
expansion, consolidation of essential grammatical patterns, and the
development of skills to approach authentic written texts.  Daily and active
participation in class is required. The grade will be based on daily
performance, homework assignments, quizzes, and three oral/written tests.
