Time: 7:00 – 8:30 pm
This Beginner II course is designed for adult students who have taken a Crash Course in Chinese Beginner I or who have learned Pinyin and basic conversation in Chinese. This course will provide a review of the previous class (numbers, self-introduction, shopping and ordering food), as well as cover new topics such as sharing about one’s hobbies, talking about date and time, making appointments on the phone, and giving directions.
Students will learn the pronunciation and use of many common vocabulary terms, basic grammar rules, and will engage in authentic conversations, which will highlight unique aspects of Chinese culture. This course emphasizes listening and speaking skills and does not require the memorization of written characters.
A textbook for this course will be provided.
