This Second Year Chinese course will build upon the skills students learned in First Year Chinese. Through the use of more complex grammar rules and sentences patterns, this course will help students improve the four essential skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing for everyday communication in Mandarin Chinese. Formal and written expressions in Chinese will also be introduced and students will work with short literary texts and authentic materials on familiar topics such as school, travel, and media. This course emphasizes the "5Cs" of foreign language study—communication, cultures, comparisons, connections, and communities. This course presents both traditional and simplified character versions, allowing students to see the variations between the characters, while focusing on the simplified version for most assignments.This course is available only online. Students will be required to use audio listening and recording software to complete their assignments. Students will be also be required to scan or capture images of some of their written work for online submission.
