East Asian Languages and Cultures | Third-Year Chinese I
C301 | 1627 | Liu

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
texts in various styles.  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.
