Chinese 101-102 is a beginning level course. It is assumed the students have no previous knowledge of spoken or written Chinese. It is university policy that if you can already speak Chinese but want to learn how to read and write, you are NOT allowed in this class. Please take Intermediate Chinese Reading and Writing for Mandarin Speakers (Chinese 222), which is offered in the Spring semester. That course is designed especially for you. Your college deans will delete any credit you earn in Chinese 101 and/or 102 if they find out you were overqualified for the class -- even if you have completed the course -- and we cannot do anything about it. That is not this case if you take Chinese 222. But note: Students can only take either Chinese 101 and/or 102 or Chinese 121 and/or 222 credit cannot be given for bothChinese 101 and/or 102 and Chinese 121 and/or 222.Class times and classrooms

[back to top ] 1. REQUIRED:Kung Fu (I): An Elementary Chinese Text. By John C. Jamieson and Lin Tao. Hong Kong: Chinese University Press, 2002. [referred to in the syllabus as KF]
2.REQUIRED:Kung Fu (I): Student Exercise Manual. By John C. Jamieson and Lin Tao. Hong Kong: Chinese University Press, 2002. [referred to in the syllabus as EM]
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Student Exercise Manual is the workbook for this class from which most of the homework assignments will be drawn. However, students are required to write out the homework assignments by hand on separate sheets of paper. DO NOT turn your homework in on pages torn from this book. The reasons for this are: (1) The additional copying required will allow you more practice writing Chinese; and (2) leaving the exercise book blank will allow you to use it to test yourself for review and practice. The Chinese character assignments can be done on the practice sheets supplied in the Course Packet (see below) . It is unacceptable to use plain notebook paper for the writing assignments .
3. OPTIONAL: Audio CD for Kung Fu (I): An Elementary Chinese Text. By John C. Jamieson and Lin Tao. Hong Kong: Chinese University Press, 2002. NOTE: Entirely new audio for the text, recorded by our Rutgers Chinese teachers, is now available in the course Sakai sites for your sections. So this optional purchase is of little use.
4. OPTIONAL: Oxford Starter Chinese Dictionary. Oxford University Press, 2000.
All the above materials are available from the Barns & Noble Rutgers Bookstore by the train station and probably also from New Jersey Books on Easton Avenue.
You are ALSO REQUIRED to get a copy of the COURSE PACKET --which can be printed out by following the links in the box below.
While purchase of the CD for the text is optional, you are still ALSO REQUIREDto work with the CD or the audio recordings in the course Sakai sites of the lessons.
Character practice must be done on the blank pages supplied in the Course Packet Materials that we have made available for download as .pdf files for you to print yourself. The course packet materials also include the "Character Reference Sheets" that provide information for the Chinese characters of the writing assignments. You can print out these materials by following the below links in the web copy of this syllabus at
[back to top ] Regular classroom work may be occasionally supplemented with video, computer CD ROM, and internet work. There will be weekly Tests, a Midterm, and a Final. There may also be spot quizzes given without notice. All tests and exams are cumulative. Learning a language, especially one as difficult as Chinese, is a very demanding task. You are required to attend every class. And you must thoroughly prepare the scheduled lesson material before class . You must also complete and turn in on time all assigned homework.
Language Lab audio listening assignments are given italicized inside brackets "[ ] " in the syllabus on the dates you should start listening to the recordings of a lesson. As noted above, entirely new audio for the text, recorded by our Rutgers Chinese teachers, will be available in the course Sakai sites for your sections. You may work with the audio recordings or the CD in the Language Lab or at home.
There will be an oral projectdueat the end of the semester. during the last two classes. You will be required to develop a skit to perform before the class in a group of two or three classmates. The content of the skit must use the grammar patterns that we learn this semester and focus on the vocabulary we learned also–you can also add new vocabulary if you want (but will have to provide a "new vocabulary" sheet for your classmates). Your skits must be about ten minutes long. The skits will be scored in part by peer evaluation: students in the audience will be given a score sheet to assign points on the basis of certain criteria indicated on the sheet. The content and form of the skit is up to you. You can perform a play, or a talk show, or a game show, etc. The skit will count for 30 points out of the 280 points for the final exam.

ANNOUNCEMENT: SUMMER IN BEIJING, CHINA
[back to top ]
This coming Summer 2016, the Rutgers University Department of Asian Languages and Cultures will hold its annual summer program in China in Beijing at the Beijing Languages and Cultures University. The program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to study Chinese in a native environment. Located in the heart of Beijing’s northwestern university district, within walking distance of Tsinghua University and a short bus ride from Beijing University, BLCU is the premier institute for language study in China. BLCU’s primary educational mission is to provide intensive training in languages, including the teaching of Chinese language and culture to foreign students, educating Chinese students in foreign languages and other relevant subjects in the humanities and social sciences, and training teachers who teach Chinese as a foreign language. BLCU’s Chinese language textbooks are widely adopted in university programs in China and abroad. On the BLCU campus, students will have access to the Internet, and dining and gym facilities. There are also lots of restaurants and several marketplaces nearby; and the Beijing subway is a short walk away. The program is held under the direction of a Professor of Chinese at Rutgers.
For more information, visit the program web page at http://asianlanguages.rutgers.edu/students/undergraduate/summer-chinese-program. You can also click here for MORE INFO about the program where, a pplications are already being accepted!
Students on this program in the past had a grand time and learned a lot. We encourage all our students to join us in China next summer and reinforce all that you will learn this semester in an exciting native environment.
1. Make-ups for missed quizzes and exams will only be given for legitimate absences that are reported at the Rutgers absence reporting site: https://sims.rutgers.edu/ssra/. If you are ill (and present a note from your doctor) or observing a religious holiday, you will be allowed to makeup that quiz or exam.
2. Course attendance policy is that you are allowed two free, unexplained absences. Any further absences will not be tolerated. We will make daily note of your attendance and your final grade will be reduced by three percentage points for each day you are absent after the first time. Absences can be excused only for religious reasons or by presentation of a note from your doctor stating a valid medical cause, and must be reportedbefore the class you miss through the absence reporting site at https://sims.rutgers.edu/ssra /.
3. Three tardies of 15 minutes or less will count as one absence. If you are more than 15 minutes late it will be counted as an absence. Also, if you are tardy more than three times, the instructor will no longer be responsible for including you in drill or answering your questions regarding missed lesson in class.
4. All homework assignments should be finished and handed in before the class begins . Exercises handed in on time will be corrected, graded, and returned to you promptly. Late assignments will be noted but will NOT receive grades.
5. Your final grade will be calculated as follows:
a. effort 10% (or more)
b. homework/assignments 10%
c. tests 20%
d. quizzes 5%
e. midterm <250 points> 25%
f. essays <20 points> 2%
g. final (written exam <250 points> and oral project <30 points>) 28%
6. The "effort" grade will be based on regular attendance, preparation, and class participation. Students will lose points for unexcused absences, tardiness, leaving class early, poor classroom attitude, failure to regularly attend the language lab, and failure to hand in homework on time. Remember: You, the student, are the one who is learning the language; we, the instructors, can only provide you with the opportunity to learn.
7. Final grade scoring:
F 59 or below
8. Please feel free to come to our office hours when you have questions that cannot be satisfactorily solved during class time, or simply when you need extra help. But you should not get in the habit of missing class and then trying to make up what you missed during our office hours.
Finally: Happy New Year & Welcome to class! We hope you continue to enjoy learning Chinese and discovering the world that the language opens up for you.
