CHNS 0411 - Classical Chinese I
*Classical Chinese I (in Chinese)* This course is an introduction to wenyan, the written language of traditional China. In this course we will emphasize comprehension of the literal and metaphorical meanings of short /wenyan/ texts. Our approach will include grammatical analysis and /baihua/ translation (i.e., from the Classical Chinese into modern Chinese); discussion will be conducted entirely in /baihua/. This course begins the two-semester sequence of Classical Chinese, which not only introduces students to /wenyan/ but also provides a vital learning experience for any student seeking to attain a high level of linguistic and cultural proficiency in Chinese, including modern written discourse.
