This sequence of courses is offered fall (CHI310), winter (CHI320) and spring (CHI400). In this course stream students step beyond the basic phase of language acquisition and come to realize their autonomy in self-expression. Students use higher-level grammar and vocabulary to engage in readings, writings and discussions on varied social and cultural topics such as education, internet use and relationships. Both text and supplementary readers provide the student with more colorful means to communicate. Additionally, authentic video clips, songs, and proverbial sayings add to the student's cultural grasp of Mandarin.
