However, special emphasis will be on strengthening students’ reading and writing proficiency in standard written Chinese, the grammar and vocabulary of which differ considerably from colloquial Chinese introduced during the first two years of instruction. Conducted in Mandarin.
Format: lecture/conference; All regular course meetings will be conducted ONLINE with mostly a synchronous mode of instruction. FIRST MEETING: for those who are on campus, we will have our FIRST meeting outdoors; those who remain remote can choose either "Zoom" in or attend a separate online FIRST meeting. For full information about the format of the course, please contact the instructor.
Grading: no pass/fail option,

Evaluation will be based on daily classroom performance, short essays, presentations, homework, quizzes, unit tests, and a final exam (oral and written).
