Chinese (Mandarin)

CHIN 1101 (FA) and 1102 (SP) are 6-credit courses intended for beginners only; students with some facility in the spoken language (because Chinese is spoken at home) but who do not read characters should take CHIN 1109–1110. Students who read Chinese, but who speak "dialects," such as Cantonese or Amoy, should enroll in CHIN 2215.

CHIN 1109 (FA) and 1110 (SP) are 4-credit courses designed for students who speak some Chinese (e.g., at home), but who have had little or no formal training. The focus is on characters, reading comprehension, basic composition, standard grammar, and reading aloud with standard Chinese (Mandarin) pronunciation.
