P: grade of C or better in C202 or equivalent proficiency, or
permission of the instructor.
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.
