Course Description

College Mandarin Chinese Curriculum Intermediate Level 2 is a sequel to my two previously published, unanimously five-star rated courses: College Mandarin Chinese Curriculum Beginning Level and Intermediate Level 1. This course is the second half of Intermediate level Chinese, and allows you to learn in just one month a full semester's college Chinese curriculum at intermediate level based on the same range of vocabulary, grammar, situational dialogues and discussion topics. As the other two courses, its design simulates to a great extent the teacher-student interaction in the classroom, such as found in oral exercises of answering questions, reading after the teacher, describing pictures, translation and grammar drill, etc. By using hundreds of entertaining pictures that immediately tests your application of learned language information after every slide, this course brings teaching, reviewing, testing and application of language into a quick succession simulating the cognitive mode of immersive learning of language. Therefore, it combines the benefits of classroom teaching, Rosetta Stone Chinese and online learning while avoiding their shortcomings. As the third sequel of this language learning sequence (altogether five courses), it allows you to progress from basic, daily situational dialogue to discursive language of discussion and debate on daily and social topics: such as discussion of the habitability of a city or a building; Chinese schools of cuisines; criteria for purchasing goods; conflict resolving in dating relationship; the benefits and harm of Computer Age. Through this course, you will learn not only vocabulary for daily conversation, but also more sophisticated vocabulary and grammar for discussing increasing advanced social topics. The instructor is again Professor Hong Zeng, an awarding-winning professor of Chinese for 16 years at prestigious American liberal arts colleges and national universities. After this course, you will be fully ready to embark on studying advanced Chinese in this language sequence.

    After taking this course, you will be able to:

    • You'll be able to learn one full semester's college Chinese curriculum at an intermediate level in just one month (based on the same range of vocabulary, grammar and topics)
    • To learn to write 600 Chinese characters; and to learn the increasingly discursive Chinese language to discuss the habitability of a city, building, choosing major, Chinese schools of cuisine, criteria for purchasing goods, resolving relationship conflict in dating and courtship, and the benefits and harm of Computer Age. As the third sequel in College Mandarin Chinese on Your Own sequence, you will progress from daily situational dialogue to the discussion of more advanced social topics.

     

    This course is for professionals within the following business functions:

    • Although not required, it is highly desirable that the students of this course have also taken the College Mandarin Chinese on Your Own Beginning and Intermediate level 1 published by me, due to the continuity of vocabulary, grammar and topics in this language sequence.
