CHN 101 - Elementary Chinese I

Credits 3
This course is designed for beginning students who wish to complete their first semester of Chinese language. Using a task-based approach, this first year course helps students to express themselves in real-life contexts, to interact with others, and to solve real problems. In the course, students learn by using authentic texts and tasks to inform their language learning and by reflecting upon their actions. In the process of completing tasks, students use multiple linguistic skills, create oral and written texts in the process, and learn about Chinese people and cultures. Reading, listening, speaking, and writing processes appropriate to beginning language students are developed in this course as are opportunities to use technology to further their understanding of Chinese people and culture. This is a three-credit course and meets twice weekly.
