Other parts of the course
The course aims to help students acquire a better knowledge of some grammatical and morpho-syntactic structures and lexical peculiarities of modern Chinese language, as well as to improve students' oral and written communication skills, developing also their competence in interethnic and interlinguistic comparison.
In order to be admitted to the exam, the students are required to have successfully passed Chinese Language 1. The exam is propaedeutic to Chinese Language 3.
Among the grammatical topics, particular attention will be dedicated to prepositions, adverbs, connectors, resultative, directional and potential complements. The peculiarities of these grammatical and syntactic structures will be defined in their real linguistic context through translation exercises. In-class conversation will improve the students’ communication skills, as well as stimulate them to reflect and discuss the major features of Chinese and Western society and culture.
