Pretty easy, overall.
The professor is really easy going. The class was great for someone eager to learn Chinese.
You learn to write characters and begin writing articles. You also use more oral Chinese.

Advice for students:
You get three absences and after that you get points taken off the grade so go to class as much as possible. Studying for the class is easy, it just takes 15-20 minutes per day. Before I went to class, I would read through the text, find the words I didn't know, and add them in.
