This is the second of two Advanced Mandarin Chinese courses. If you have successfully completed Chinese 301, or have had equivalent experience with Mandarin Chinese as assessed by the Chinese program, then this course is for you. In Chinese 302, you will continue to develop your communicative skills in both oral and written forms. Structured practice in accurate use of vocabulary and sentence patterns will lay the foundation for mastering the linguistic structures and styles of Chinese. Critical reading and discussion of a range of controversial topics of contemporary Chinese culture and society aim to deepen your understanding of China’s traditions and changes. By the end of the semester, you are expected to be able to actively use the vocabulary items, idiomatic expressions, and sentence structures you have learned in this course to accurately and appropriately express your ideas in oral communication and formal writing. You are also expected to be able to carry out informed discussions of the topics included in this course.
If you plan to take a Chinese language course in Spring 2011, and if this will be the first time that you take a Chinese language course at Emory, then you are required to take the online Chinese Placement Test. The deadline for completing the test is 5 pm, Saturday, Oct 23. We will evaluate your results and email you our placement recommendations between Oct 25-29.
