Over the span of this course we will complete the last lesson in Practical Chinese Reader volume one. Then we will say 再見 to 帕蘭卡,古波 and 丁雲. Then we will cover several selections from the text Traditional Chinese Tales, 聊齋故事. This book is a collection of short stories of the strange and mysterious originally penned by 蒲松齡, Pú Sònglíng, in the late 17th century. The stories we will read have been re-written in contemporary language using vocabulary suitable for intermediate Chinese learners.
The Syllabus and Schedule sections are specific for CHIN202-02 Spring 2017, but the Study Guide can be used by anyone interested in Chinese.
