BEGINNING CHINESE I
This course introduces students to Mandarin Chinese, a common speech shared by all dialect speakers in China. It adopts pinyin (Chinese Phonetic Alphabet) as the standard phonetic system. It trains students in all aspects of the language - listening, speaking, reading and writing.
As the first semester of the second-year Chinese, this course further enhances students' language skills in both spoken and written form and their understanding of the cultural and social context in which the language is shaped and formed.
