Primary Instructor:

This course is the continuation of ASIANLAN 405, Chinese for the Professions I (usually offered in the fall semester). ASIANLAN 405, which provides language training by way of a comprehensive introduction to China’s economic situation and business environment, is a knowledge-based course that emphasizes reading and discussion. This course, however, is a task-based and computer-assisted course with an emphasis on “learning by doing.” Under the instructor’s guidance, students will be challenged by a number of real-world tasks, which are designed in five modules, namely, news report, commercial language design, business letter-writing, oral presentation, and job interview. All the activities and assignments are intended to facilitate language use in the real business world as well as further studies of Chinese for specific purposes.

Class Format:

Classes are conducted in Chinese and feature collaborative learning and peer feedback.
