East Asian Languages & Cultures | Third-Year Chinese I
C301 | 1595 | Liu

P: grade of C or higher in C202 or equivalent proficiency

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 as well as intensive viewing of a Chinese film.  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
aural-oral and written text.  Daily and active participation in class is
required. The grade will be based on daily performance, homework
assignments, quizzes, and three oral/written review tests.
