This course is designed to teach students who do not speak Chinese how to function in Chinese culture and communicate with native Chinese speakers. More than knowing the right words, communication involves understanding what to say, how to say it, and with whom it is appropriate to use certain words, gestures, etc. Thus, in this course, we will learn not only vocabulary but also how to speak and behave in a culturally appropriate way in a Chinese context. The primary emphasis in the course is the oral language (speaking and listening skills), while the secondary emphasis is the written language (reading and writing skills).
