Syllabus for Use in Mandarin Chinese Language IV.
Lee, Pickering Chang-shou
This syllabus for teachers of the fourth year of a course in Mandarin Chinese is based on the texts "Intermediate Chinese" and "Beginning Chinese Reader" by John DeFrancis. The objectives and scope of the third year focus on increasing translation skills; developing an understanding of Communist China; and expanding recognition of Chinese characters by 1200 new characters. The emphasis in basic skills development is placed on reading and writing. Seventeen units are outlined with sections on Chinese culture included. The cultural materials stress the study of modern history in Communist China, focusing on cultural developments from 1949 through 1969. For the companion documents see FL 002 203, FL 002 204, and FL 002 205. (RL)
