CHI 2014 – Advanced Chinese Conversation and Composition

A gateway course for students continuing in advanced-level Chinese courses. Designed for students to become more proficient in five key areas of language acquisition (speaking, reading, writing, listening, and culture), the course provides a thorough review that consists of grammar-based activities in a variety of contexts and language functions. Special attention will also be paid to writing in Chinese: understanding different modes of expression (exposition, narration, description, argumentation) and writing effectively (coherent discourse, lexical flexibility, rhetoric, and style).
