Chinese II courses build upon skills developed in Chinese I, extending students’ ability to understand and express themselves in Chinese and increasing their vocabulary. Typically, students learn how to engage in discourse for informative or social purposes, write expressions or passages that show understanding of sentence construction and phrasing, and comprehend the language when spoken slowly. Students usually explore the customs, history, and art forms of Chinese-speaking people to deepen their understanding of the culture(s).
Prerequisites: successful completion of Chinese I
Notes: There are currently only two years of Chinese offered.
