Course Description

This course is a brief introduction to the Chinese language and culture. This course promotes awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the Chinese civilization—the people and their cultures. Throughout the course, the differences and similarities between Chinese and English, between China (a representative of Eastern culture and civilization) and the U.S. (a representative of Western culture and civilization) will often be compared. This course is a first stepping stone for students who want to take Chinese as a foreign language when they get into high school.
