Course Description

CHIN 2217 is a continuation of CHIN 2215. It is designed to further develop students' reading, writing, and speaking skills at the intermediate level. Students will learn another 300 Chinese words/phrases and further grammatical concepts. Through reading relevant materials, students will gain more social and cultural knowledge of China, develop their appreciation for Chinese language and literature, and enhance their Chinese literacy level. Students are also expected to develop more sophisticated skills of composition, such as writing analytically. Chinese films will be introduced to provide students with current images and scenes of China. This course will lay a solid foundation for students who want to learn Chinese at the advanced level.

Students must be able to use all the basic sentence patterns in modern Chinese and to read, write, and use approximately 2000 Chinese words and phrases. Students who have not completed CHIN 2215 should consult with an instructor of Chinese before registering in this course.

Students who have completed grade four or equivalent in a Chinese-speaking country/area and/or who have completed an intermediate-level course(s) in Chinese as a second language that is more advanced than CHIN 2215 are not normally permitted to register in CHIN 2217.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C-" grade in CHIN 2215 or demonstrated equivalent competency.
