Chinese 7N will develop students’ ability to understand and communicate in Chinese in everyday situations. Toward this end, much time is spent providing the necessary communicative tools: vocabulary and grammar in Chinese simplified characters. The basic grammar and vocabulary points are learned and built upon to acquire more complex structures for communication. Students will focus on the four linguistic modalities: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The proficiency level of students who finish this course successfully is novice, as defined by American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages World Readiness Standards. Authentic materials, textbooks and practical application in culturally authentic situations will be used to equip students with the basic skills necessary for future studies of Mandarin.
