This is an accelerated course for beginners with no or little knowledge of Chinese. Students learn the fundamentals of the Chinese language through speaking, listening, reading, and writing, including tones, elementary Chinese characters (writing), vocabulary, and grammatical functions such as affirmative and negative, asking questions, and expressing past and future. The course follows a whole language approach, so students are also introduced to aspects of Chinese culture and topics of everyday conversations such as greetings, family, visiting friends, expressions of time, hobbies, shopping and school.
