Description

College Mandarin Chinese on Your Own Advanced level 1 is a sequel to my three previously published, highly ranked courses: College Mandarin Chinese on Your Own Beginning Level and Intermediate Level 1 and 2. The beginning level of this sequence is ranked no. 1 in student review and sales in Chinese language category on Udemy, the largest paid online platform in the world. This course is the first half of advanced level Chinese, and allows you to learn in just one month a full semester's college Chinese curriculum at advanced level based on the same range of vocabulary, grammar, and discussion topics. As the other three courses, its design simulates to a great extent the teacher-student interaction in the classroom, such as found in oral exercises of answering questions, reading after the teacher, describing pictures, translation and grammar drill, etc. By using hundreds of entertaining pictures that immediately tests your application of learned language information after every slide, this course brings teaching, reviewing, testing and application of language into a quick succession simulating the cognitive mode of immersive learning of language. Therefore, it combines the benefits of classroom teaching, Rosetta Stone Chinese and online learning while avoiding their shortcomings. As the fourth sequel of language learning sequence (altogether five courses), it allows you to learn the discursive language of discussion and debate on social topics: such as whether college students should do part-time jobs, the comparison of children's education in China and in America, comparison of Chinese and American festivals, Chinese geography and tourist spots, the huge change of Chinese society since reform and open door policy, health, diet and physical exercises in China, etc. Through this course, you will learn advanced vocabulary and grammar for discussing popular social topics in China. The instructor is again me, Professor Hong Zeng, an awarding-winning professor of Chinese for 16 years at prestigious American liberal arts colleges and national universities. After this course, you will be fully ready to study advanced Chinese 2, the last course in this language sequence.

Who is the target audience?
  • The students at advanced level, who had learned Chinese for one or two years, and particularly those who have learned my first 3 courses in the College Mandarin Chinese on Your Own language sequence

Lesson 29 and lesson 30: doing part-time job; children's education
14 Lectures 02:36:33

This lecture teaches and practices the vocabulary and grammar of lesson 29 dialogue 1.

Imitate as closely as possible my pronunciation as you read after me
and memorize the sound, meaning and usage of vocabulary (not written
form yet), (you may pause the slide to ensure you memorize them) so that
in the very next page you can do oral exercises with these learned
vocabularies out of memory. Make sure do each oral exercise on your own
before I provide the correcting answer.

This lecture is on text practice: I will at first explain the text sentence by sentence, and then you will read the text after me twice, sentence by sentence, to ensure the accuracy of your pronunciation, for the third time just listen to my reading and answer question about the text (better not look at the text), and then listen to my correcting answer.

I am an award-winning professor of Chinese, director of "Hong Zeng's Chinese Language and Culture". I have taught Mandarin Chinese at all levels in prestigious American colleges altogether for 16 years. I have taught nine years as a tenure-track professor of Chinese at Carleton College, ranked No. 1 in undergraduate teaching in all liberal arts colleges in America, and have directed the Chinese program for two years at Hamline University (the first university in Minnesota). In both my second year coming to Carleton and Hamline, I more than doubled their Beginning Chinese Class enrollment. I have also taught at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I have two PhDs, one in Chinese and comparative literature from UNC, Chapel Hill, the other in second language education, literary translation and English literature from Beijing Foreign Studies University. I have published five books in America (including two from Macmillan) on Chinese and comparative literature, film study, language study and language philosophy that are well-endorsed by world-renowned experts and book review journals in my field. I have earned 30000 dollars large grant from Asian Network in Chinese study.
