Program Details: 

This course is a 8-credit program in Mandarin Chinese for students with no prior experience in the language, enabling students quickly to acquire a solid foundation in listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. The class is a superintensive course that will cover two semesters of material in six weeks. Particular emphasis is placed on Pinyin, the standard Mandarin Chinese transcription system, as well as the acquisition of Chinese vocabulary.  A weekly co-curricular activity will introduce students to Chinese culture.
