This course helps students to make the transition from colloquial/informal style to written/formal style. It continues with a balanced training in all four of the basic skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The textbook covers many aspects of Chinese society and culture, as well as enhances cultural awareness through language training. By completion of this course, students will have an enhanced knowledge of the general Chinese grammar system. Students will also improve their fluency level when handling conversations and communication in a more formal context.

At the end of the semester, students will be able to demonstrate familiarity with vocabulary words and grammar points at the intermediate level in Chinese. Students can master around 600 new, intermediate-level, Chinese vocabulary words. Students show proficiency in reading longer essays with a better understanding of the main ideas and supporting details of the topic. Students will demonstrate an emerging writing ability to describe, narrate, and discuss in paragraphs about some social or cultural topics in Chinese

Course Requirements:

Attendance, participation, homework, quizzes, tests, presentations, and final exam
