Mandarin 2



This course is open to non-native-speaking students who have completed Mandarin 2 or students who pass a competency test. At this level, students learn more complex sentence structures and expressions. By the end of this course, students will be able to talk about their school lives, leisure activities, health conditions, and traveling. They will also be able to write emails, holiday invitation messages, travel itineraries, sick leave notes, etc.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
