ASIANLAN 304 is designed for heritage Chinese speakers (through family background or personal experiences) with high fluency in listening and speaking on a broad range of topics and also some foundation in reading and writing. The emphasis of training is on reading and writing, although listening and speaking activities still remain part of the curriculum. Students will be exposed to more advanced-level vocabulary, language structures, expressive styles, and cultural knowledge relevant to selected topics. Students will continue to build their vocabulary and sentence patterns from each lesson and learn to recognize and use different linguistic registers.

Course Requirements:

Attendance, homework, essays, oral presentations, quizzes, and a term project

Intended Audience:

This course is for heritage speakers who have completed ASIANLAN 204 or equivalent. Those who have not taken ASIANLAN 204 must take the Chinese placement exam first in order to enroll. Information about the Chinese Placement Exam can be found on the ALC website. Students can continue to take Chinese from a rich selection of 400-level courses upon completion of this course.
