This course, conducted entirely in Chinese, is learner-centered,
content-based, and proficiency-driven.  It is designed to further develop
overall language proficiency through extensive readings of modern texts in
journalistic style.  Texts include magazine articles that report on the
issues confronting modern Chinese society.

The class meets five hours a week: two hours of interactive lectures, and
three hours of drills.  Lectures aim at the overall comprehension of the
text and the introduction of critical reading strategies.  Drills emphasize
vocabulary expansion and consolidation of essential grammatical patterns.

Daily and active participation in class is expected.  The grade will be
based on daily performance, homework assignments, quizzes, and three
oral/written tests.
