This is a basic level Chinese course.

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 (three meetings).

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 350 characters).

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

Course Requirements:

There are regular quizzes, homework assignments, and in-class exercises, oral presentations, and exams.

Intended Audience:

ASIANLAN 100 is an accelerated first semester Chinese course. It is a 3-credit course equivalent to ASIANLAN 101 meant for students with some Chinese language background but not enough to be placed into ASIANLAN 102.
