2ND YR SPOKEN CHINESE II
A continuation of CHIN003, this course is to improve students' conversational ability in Chinese. By the end of the semester, students will reach the survival level,namely, they can accomplish the basic day to day tasks encountered by visitors as well as the local people. These tasks include relating one's personal life and experiences, expressing preference, feeling and opinion, ordering a meal, purchasing goods, asking for directions, reserving hotel rooms, visiting a doctor, attending a social function and so forth. To achieve this goal, the class is to be conducted in Chinese as much as possible. Short Chinese movies or television shows will be integrated into the course curriculum. Chinese character reading and writing will also be introduced, but will not be the focus of the class.
