Abstract

Chinese Basic Course II is a continuation of Chinese Basic Course I. This course introduces students to more challenging standard Mandarin Chinese language material in order to establish a solid foundation for the use of the language. It aims at helping students to develop further a practical, learner-centered, and enjoyable language and culture learning experience. This course will continue to systematically build the students’ abilities in the four skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing so that they can reach a higher level of competence. Through a wide range of learning activities such as daily dictation, oral and written tests, recalling of conversation, story-telling, dialogue construction, presentations, the course focuses students toward further improving their pronunciation and tones; learning new grammar patterns; and applying the grammar and vocabulary learned. Additionally, the course will integrate Chinese culture into language learning to enhance the understanding of cultural influence on the language. After taking this course, learners will expand their oral expression abilities, improve understanding of grammar concepts, will be able to combine or recombine learning materials to talk about familiar topics pertaining to their daily lives (e.g. family, work, recreation, and interests) and also gain knowledge of Chinese cultures and customs. Chinese audio-visual materials, simulated conversations in life situations, and authentic reading materials will be used to facilitate appropriate language use and develop proficiency. At the end of the course students will achieve B1 level according to the CEFR.
