Chinese Etymology and Calligraphy
Chinese 187 Etymology and Calligraphy. Just took this class and I have to say that it wasn't easy, especially if you're unfamiliar with Chinese. Most of the students taking this class are native speakers, so be advised. His exams will require previous knowledge of Chinese, and you'll be expected to read, write, and look up these characters in a Chinese (no english or index) dictionary. Hence, if you've never taken a language course in Chinese, I think it'll be in you best interest to avoid this class and sign up for his other classes. Also, he has the tendency to submit grades late- beyond the administrative deadline. Other than that, he's a very personable and funny professor. His grading scheme is structured like the other courses he teaches: A midterm, final, and discussion (20%).
