This course, a continuation of ASIANLAN 104, is designed for students with native or near-native speaking ability in Chinese. The class, conducted in Chinese, will meet four hours a week with a focus on reading and writing. Coursework will be graded on the basis of classroom performance, quizzes, tests, and homework assignments. Students are required to register for both a lecture section and a recitation section. Those who have not taken ASIANLAN 104 must have the instructor’s permission in order to register for this course. Most students will receive this permission via a placement test. For test information, please refer to http://www.lsa.umich.edu/asian/language/ or contact the instructor. Students who have completed ASIANLAN 204 should be able to read simple articles and write short essays, and merge with students on the regular track into ASIANLAN 301. They should typically register for ASIANLAN 301 (or ASIANLAN 309 in some cases) if they want to continue their Chinese studies.
