“This is the first semester of the three-semester sequence of introductory Mandarin Chinese course (three credits each semester) and it aims to lay a solid foundation in Chinese for students in professional programs such as business and health. The course also covers basic concepts of Chinese culture related to these fields. Upon course completion, students will have acquired elementary language skills in the language, including basic knowledge of the phonetic Pinyin system and Chinese characters, basic terminology specific to the professional fields, and key concepts of Chinese culture.” This is the first class of the three semester sequence (3 credits each semester), which is equivalent with the traditional CHI101-102 sequence.

There are also two courses newly scheduled for the fall – CHI280 “Survey of Chinese Culture”, and CHI430 Special Topics (exact topic to be determined as soon as we have the faculty to teach the class, and we will update about this later). These courses are open to any student.
