CHIN 2209

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course focuses on reading and writing Chinese at the intermediate level for Chinese heritage students who can speak Mandarin fluently. It provides ample opportunities to read authentic texts written by some of the most iconic Chinese figures such as Hu Shih (a Cornell alumnus, class of 1914) and Lin Yutang (author of The Importance of Living and Moment in Peking) and to practice writing while exploring various aspects of traditional Chinese culture. Students will exit the course with a book of their own in Chinese as the course project that documents their learning that takes place during the semester. This course helps students further solidify the foundation for Chinese study for their next level as well as enhance their awareness and overall competence for cross-cultural communications.
