Chinese Character Literacy



Chinese Character Literacy


Fall and Spring, 2015-16







Want to learn Chinese from scratch? Or, have little prior exposure and want an opportunity to solidify your Chinese proficiency? Then, this is the course for you. This course introduces and provides basic and solid foundation for Mandarin Chinese pronunciation, tones, grammar patterns, speaking, listening, reading and writing.
You are expected to preview and review the materials thoroughly before and after each class. It is crucial that you see, hear, speak, write and have hands-on experiences with Chinese language everyday, so in addition to class meeting, you must be willing to spend about 1.5 to 2 hours per day outside of class.
Chinese characters are considered to be the most difficult yet essential and pivotal component of learning Chinese as a foreign language, so in this course, we will also help you acquire Chinese character literacy deeply and meaningfully for your long-term learning goal through character video viewing and making methods.
