EALC 10002: Elementary Chinese II

This course is a continuation of Elementary Chinese I. It is the second half of the two 3-credit course sequence (Elementary Chinese I and II) that covers the same materials as the 5-credit First Year Chinese I. Upon completion of this course, students will be ready to enroll in First Year Chinese II (5 credits) in the following spring semester. Students will continue their acquisition of the four basic language skills in Chinese: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Additional frequently used Chinese characters, vocabulary, and fundamental grammatical structures will be introduced. The emphasis of the course will be on accurate and appropriate communication in Mandarin Chinese.
