This course is designed to enable students to communicate in Chinese from the very first day of class. Students develop a solid foundation of Chinese pronunciation through the study of the pinyin system. They learn approximately 400 Chinese characters with basic grammar patterns and conversational expressions. Students’ aural-oral skills are reinforced with the use of sound files via the network. They also learn to write simple essays in Chinese. Chinese culture is an integrated part of the Chinese program with an accent on history, art, and calligraphy.
