月亮代表我的心

[Yuèliàng dàibiǎo wǒ de xīn]: The moon represents my heart

This is a Chinese classic your grandmother would love. The song was made popular many years ago and is one of the most popular Chinese songs in Asia. I am linking to the song sung by the original singer and several versions sung by non-Chinese musicians.

歡迎你跟我學中文! (Sun August 21, 2016)

大家好 (dà jiā hăo) and welcome to Chinese 201! It is great that you can continue your study of Chinese. I hope that this semester will be an interesting and rewarding experience.

My name is Jeff Winters. I will be the instructor for this course. I'm the Language Lab Director at CSULB. I also have the great opportunity to teach Chinese 201 this semester. I have been studying Chinese for over 30 years now, and teaching Mandarin for nearly 20 years. I hope that you will find the Chinese language and culture as interesting as I have.

Use the menu at the top of the page to access information related to the course. In the Faculty area, you'll find faculty office hours for the semester, and additional contact information.

In the Syllabus area, you will find details about the course, my expectations, an overview of all assignments, and information about grading and assessment. This is the first information you should read.

The Schedule area lists the topics discussed and the homework assignments due each class meeting.

The Study Guides and Grammar areas contain detailed information about each lesson including interesting links to Chinese language and cultural sites. The Assignments area is where you'll find information about each assignment. These are the two areas you will probably use most during the semester.

In the Gradebook area you will be able to access up-to-date grade information for each assignment, quizzes, and other graded activities.

There is much information available on this site and on the Internet which can enhance your Chinese learning experience. I encourage you to take advantage of this resource.
