For those moving toward proficiency in the world’s most spoken language, this course is designed to increase your confidence in Mandarin and your knowledge of Chinese writing. The third in a three-quarter sequence of introductory Mandarin Chinese, this course is geared toward students who have taken the first two quarters in the sequence, or who know approximately 300 words and can carry out some simple conversations on such topics as family, work, schedules, and food.

By the end of the quarter, students will be able to give more detailed descriptions and talk about more complicated topics such as fashion, shopping, transportation, and cultural festivals. Students will improve their Chinese in this lively, interactive course.
