Chinese for Heritage Speakers


Designed for students who have lived in a Mandarin-speaking environment, but who have limited ability to read and write in Mandarin. This course covers the basic vocabulary and grammatical structures of Modern Standard Chinese with a focus on reading and writing skills.

For full course information see the Digital Course Outline for CHINESE 202.
Digital Course Outlines are refreshed in November for the following year. Digital Course Outlines for courses to be offered for the first time may be published slightly later.

By completing both CHINESE 202 and 302, you can consider seeking a minor in Chinese (See the Calendar for the specific requirement). The courses can also be taken as a Certificate of Proficiency (COP).
