Classes and Materials／课堂注意事项和教课书
|Classes will be conducted entirely in Chinese. The textbooks for this semester are Integrated Chinese (Level II Part 2) by Ted Yao and Liu Yuehua, and there are two of them: (1) Textbook, and (2) Workbook.
In some of the quizzes, you may encounter questions whose grammatical structures have not been introduced. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t do well occasionally in these quizzes. They put emphasis on reading comprehension and may exceed the syntactic rules to which you have been formally introduced. They are designed to find out your attention to nuances and subtleties, and accustom you to being aware of their existence. While these scores are negligible (each counting as 1% of your course grade) and not worth losing sleep over, it is time to spur yourself on and get used to communication in the real cultural situations.
