CHIN 3110 - Intermediate Chinese I

Goals: To develop conversational ability around the topics of the weather, Chinese cuisine, directions and location, planning a party, and seeing a doctor. Students will also read stories in simple non-technical prose, and master the vocabulary and grammar introduced in their readings. This course is designed to help students to reach intermediate level communicative skills and to establish a solid base for more advanced language learning.

Content: A textbook and two workbooks provide opportunities to learn vocabulary and sentences, gain understanding of Chinese grammar, and practice speaking, listening, reading, writing, translating and self-expression. Chinese geography and regional cuisine will be taught through map exercises, folk songs, and film clips. Students will research a restaurant in China and present the regional dishes served there.

Taught: Annually, in fall term
