CHNS 3301 - Pre-Advanced Chinese      

This course is designed for students who have completed the intermediate Chinese or the equivalent. While many of the linguistic tasks students learn to handle are similar to those of Level II, the level of language required to carry out these tasks is more advanced. Students are introduced to the written Chinese (shumianyu) and taught how to make the transition from reading pedagogically prepared materials to more authentic materials.

Rigorous practice of spoken and written Chinese in complex communicative activities will be complemented by intensive practice sessions to fine-tune pronunciation, expand vocabulary, and internalize more complex grammatical constructions. Students will also do intensive reading of expository writings on a variety of cultural topics. This course is conducted in Mandarin Chinese.

Required Text: Chou, Chih Ping, Joanne Chian, Jianna Eagar, A New China: An Intermediate Reader of Modern Chinese, Revised Edition. ISBN - 978-0-691-14836
