This 5-session short course provides the necessary bridge between high intermediate Chinese courses (206~209) and advanced level courses. Students will be trained to develop real-life competence in pronunciation, spoken communication and active listening skills by watching select authentic videos and engaging in meaningful conversation and speech drills under the guidance of an experienced instructor. Improve your skills in reading, vocabulary and grammar, and become familiar with Chinese customs, popular idioms, phrases and expressions used in daily life. Guided class discussions and presentations enable students to apply the content, language, grammar and linguistic styles used in the videos.
