East Asian Languages and Cultures | Third-Year Chinese II
C302 | 1631 | Liu


P: grade of C or higher in C301 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 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.
