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.
