Course Outline

Following the Chinese Foundation 1 class, this Chinese Foundation 2 class will take the first step in learning Chinese grammar. This course consists of two volumes, the first of which covers three units and the second covers four. Each unit is composed of four lessons. There are altogether 28 lessons. After learning the two volumes, you will be able to speak more than 600 Chinese words and expressions and write over 400 Chinese characters. Let's learn more about the Chinese Foundation 2 course together: -Before each unit is the contents of the unit, from which you can clearly see the lessons this unit covers and the topics, important sentences and language points of each lesson. -Each lesson consists of "Text", "New words", "Learn to Speak", "Notes on Language Points" ("Notes on Chinese Phonetics"), "Learn Chinese Characters", "Reading and Writing Exercises" and "Comprehensive Exercises". -Each lesson includes two or three texts, and the new words are listed after each text in order of appearance in the text. -"Learn to Speak" includes example sentences, charts and exercises for each lesson. If you are still unclear about the language points, you can read the English translation of "Notes on Language Points". -We will learn about twenty new characters in a lesson. To help you better understand Chinese characters, "Learn Chinese Characters" introduces some knowledge about the structures, components and radicals of Chinese characters. "Reading and Writing Exercises" further provides many exercises in Chinese characters. -"Comprehensive Exercises" includes exercises of listening, reading and speaking. Please finish those exercises actively following the teacher's instructions in class. Only in this way can you really improve your Chinese level. This unit of work is equipped with the recording script and worksheets. The worksheets are assignments for each lesson. Please finish them in earnest after class. At the end of each unit, there is a set of unit review exercises, which can help you have a comprehensive review. The book is also equipped with a recording of the texts, new words and listening exercises and multi-media teaching courseware. Please review and practise after class with these resources. . Finally, I wish you make smooth and continuous progress and achieve your personal goals of learning Chinese! This course will run for 8 weeks every Thursday evening from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
