Students continue learning Mandarin Chinese by focusing on pinyin and character review, pronunciation, grammar, tones, and simplified Chinese characters. Students gain enhanced cultural understanding and language mastery. Beyond traditional course material, this course makes use of a Conversation Café that gives students the opportunity to speak with other students, teaching assistants, and the instructor to practice what they are learning.
