Basic Chinese II is a continuation of Basic Chinese I (L04 130). Students will continue to learn Chinese phonetics, vocabulary, grammars and to perform the language in a culturally appropriate way. This course emphasizes all four skills of a language, listening, speaking, reading and writing. After completing this course, students should be able to read and write approximately 350 Chinese words, and to conduct daily conversations in a colloquial way. The topics covered in the course will include school life, shopping, studying Chinese and making appointments. In addition to lectures, students are required to attend a ten-minute one-on-one language practice with the instructor. After completing Basic Chinese course II (L04 131) in the fall, students who are interested in further studies can move on to L04 102D. Basic Chinese I and Basic Chinese II do not fulfill the language sequence requirement, nor the two-semester language requirement for the EALC minor. Prerequisite: L04 130 (grade of B- or better) or by placement test.
