Course Description

Building on the material covered in CHIN 1115, CHIN 1215 develops students' listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. New vocabulary (in both phonetic transcript and in characters) and grammar concepts are introduced through a study of the Chinese socio-cultural knowledge embedded in the readings. At the end of Chinese 1215, students are expected to be able to understand and speak basic Mandarin and to read and write approximately 500 Chinese words and phrases.

Students who have completed elementary grade one or equivalent in a Chinese-speaking country/area are not normally permitted to register in CHIN 1215. Students who have completed BC Mandarin 11 should consult an instructor of Chinese before registering in CHIN 1215.

Registered students deemed to be overqualified will be directed to a higher level course.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in CHIN 1115 or demonstrated equivalent competency.
