All four language skills — listening, speaking, reading and writing — will be taught in a systematic way. We will cover Lesson 1 to Lesson 10 of Integrated Chinese Level 1 after a thorough review of pinyin, the Chinese pronunciation system, at the rate of about one lesson per week. This structure, coupled with regular quizzes, homework assignments, and in-class exercises, is designed to help students understand how the Chinese language works grammatically, and how to use Chinese in real life.

If students prepare for class every day in the manner recommended, investing the standard two hours a day outside of class, they will gain control of the sound system (especially the 4 tones), basic sentence patterns, audio comprehension, daily conversations and the writing system (about 700 characters).

Students successfully completing this course will continue on into ASIANLAN 102.
