So, this is the year you were going to begin studying Chinese at Yale University … but once again you forgot to fill out the application paperwork.
Not to worry. With the syllabus and materials for “Chinese 130 - Online Multimedia Text” all being provided online, you can easily “follow along” with the listening, reading, writing and speaking resources to which the “real” students in this course have access.
You can choose between Simplified or Traditional character versions - each containing a source text, exercises, vocabulary, and grammar notes.
If you’re determined and industrious, you can certainly guide yourself through the materials for this course and learn a great deal if you’re a beginner.
On the other hand, if you’ve already studied the Chinese language for awhile, this will serve as a good refresher course for you.
And best of all, you can skip all the quizzes and exams without having to worry about flunking out of school.
