Chinese Courses

CHN 110 Fundamentals of Chinese-I (four credit hours)
In this course students establish a firm cultural and linguistic foundation from which to begin their journey to fluency. The goal is to amass a survivor's bank of Chinese words and phrases, learn the pinyin Romanization system and the proper pronunciation of Chinese words, as well as to begin to understand the structure and use of traditional and simplified Chinese characters. All this will be achieved through dedicated efforts outside of class and active participation in a fast-paced, performance-based classroom enhanced by multimedia. By the end of the course, students should be able to perform real world tasks entirely in Chinese in at least 11 practical contexts.

CHN 120 Fundamentals of Chinese-II (four credit hours)
A continuation of CHN 110. Prerequisite: CHN 110 or permission of the instructor.
