Introduction to Mandarin 1


Introductory Mandarin I is an introductory course for students in Mandarin and Chinese culture. Though the course is conversational in nature, students are introduced to Hanyu pinyin and simplified Chinese characters, thus, allowing them to read and write in language as well. Chinese culture is integrated through the thematic units, media selections, and assessment tasks in the course, all meant to enrich student learning and appreciation of the language and the culture embedded in it.
