This course is the start of a transition from colloquial/informal style to written/formal style. It continues with a balanced requirement in all the four basic skills — listening, speaking, reading and writing. The textbook, A New Chinese Course (Book 3), covers many aspects of Chinese society and culture, as well as enhances cultural awareness in terms of language training. By completion of this course, students will have an enhanced knowledge of the general Chinese grammar system. Students will also improve upon their fluency level when handling conversation and communication in a formal context.

Course Requirements:

Students’ work is evaluated based on daily attendance, performance in classroom activity, completion of homework assignments, oral and writing tests, and a term project.

Intended Audience:

Designed for students who have completed two years of Chinese study. Heritage speakers of Chinese who want to improve their reading and writing skills should take ASIANLAN 304, Chinese for Heritage Speakers III.

Class Format:

The class meets five hours per week. The class is conducted mainly in Chinese.
