Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper is a continuation of CHINE131, and focuses on the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing the Chinese language at an elementary level.

As a continuation of CHINE131, this paper will enable you to develop further your basic Chinese vocabulary and grammar. By the end of the trimester, you will have learned about days and dates, and the Chinese money system, and you should be able to conduct a simple conversation and write in Chinese characters on everyday topics, such as your family, going shopping, visiting the doctor, and renting accommodation.

Lessons 8-13 of the New Practical Chinese Reader Textbook.

Due to classes continuing to be taught online for the B trimester, two zoom sessions per week will be arranged to cover material from each lesson of the textbook. (I will liaise with students just prior to the beginning of teaching to fix convenient times for these sessions.) These will be supplemented with one weekly face-to-face tutorial, and PPT materials on Moodle.
