Intermediate Modern Chinese: Intensive
If you intend to take an intensive summer Chinese course that will rip the blood from your veins and send you howling mad in the middle of the night, make sure you take Professor Sun. Her teaching style emphasizes participation in all respects. Should you need help, she will help you, and is always happy and willing to. I took a summer class, so we all had to work like oxen just to keep up with the momentum, though we only had one or two assignments a week. Everyday there's a 20-word vocab quiz\363if not, it means that you're taking a test. KEEP UP WITH THE CLASS. (Even Prof. Sun started to look a little pale by sixth week.) Our textbook was well chosen, and Prof. Sun did well to stick with it and explain words and structures that the authors had overlooked. She is fair and helpful, but best of all, she makes you learn the language. Take Prof. Sun and you won't regret it\363you'll even be confident enough to say it in Chinese.
