Students taking this course will be given tools to effectively study the Mandarin language. Focus is placed on building understanding the construction of Chinese characters rather than memorizing specific characters themselves. Students will learn pronunciation by studying the proper way to read pinyin, giving them the ability to correctly pronounce all vocabulary they will encounter in the future. Students will also practice looking up the meaning and pronunciation of unfamiliar Chinese words, and how to effectively use resources to translate between English and Mandarin independently.
