Adult Conversation Level 2 is designed for those students with some prior knowledge of Mandarin Chinese. It is intended to consolidate the students' knowledge of Mandarin and improve their ability in the four skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Upon completion of this course, students should be able to speak Chinese with some fluency on daily conversational topics, achieve a basic level of competence with characters and reading comprehension, and be able to write some simple compositions with characters learned.
