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).
This class takes place in person at the University Connected Learning and Continuing Education building (540 Arapeen Drive, SLC). Class is limited to 16. Students may choose to purchase the book "Integrated Chinese, Textbook Simplified Characters, Level 1, part 1" but it is not required. We hate canceling classes, but sometimes there are forces outside of our control. Please keep this in mind as you purchase supplies and hang onto your receipt. Email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the status of a class.
