Chinese 3A

This course is the first in a two-course sequence and is designed for students who have at least 2-3 years of prior experience in learning Chinese. This course focuses on cultivating students’ skills in using more advanced vocabulary and more complex sentence structures to express themselves through project-based language learning activities. Topics in this level include starting a new semester, dorm life, at a restaurant, shopping, and choosing courses. Using a flipped design, students will be instructed to complete preview and review activities asynchronously with a suggested pacing-guide. Students are also required to take a 50-minute lab session per week and interact with their instructor and classmates for synchronous learning.
