    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to give you a chance to learn Chinese. I think it is such a useful language to learn in this modern era. However, I found the class to be unreasonably difficult with little improvement in my own language abilities. It involved a lot of vocabulary memorization and the course itself felt very disorganized. I did not always understand what I was being graded on because there was so much to be graded on, that I could not focus on the material and make necessary improvements. After we received a test score, we would immediately move onto the next chapter and I did not have time to review what mistakes I had made because I needed to keep up.

    Course highlights:

    I did gain a determination to keep learning the language, because I saw many of my class mates decided that it was not worth the time and effort they put into the course on top of their major classes. I gained an appreciation for learning a new language and when others learn English from their native tongue. It is not easy.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Think really hard about how you learn. Do you just skim by with what you can? Can you put in your best effort? Do you enjoy learning it? That is where it will count. It's not enough to just want the grade, you need to have a deeper goal for wanting to learn Chinese and take this course.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is not for the faint of heart. You must be determined, hard-working, and diligent. It is possible to learn a lot and get a good grade, even if you didn't serve a Chinese-speaking mission, but you have to work for it. Although it is difficult it is rewarding. Your Chinese will really progress. It is designed to be similar to the culture in a class in China, so the grading is tough.

    Course highlights:

    There is a lot of writing in this course. My writing vocabulary went from a few hundred characters to over a thousand in two semesters. It really prepared me to go to China. I just visited China a few weeks ago and I understood a lot and was able to communicate with the people there.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study every day. Make a schedule for yourself for when to study. There are many assignments due every Friday. If you did not serve a Chinese-speaking mission, find a friend who did, or find a native speaker, and speak with them often.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a course that is enabled for large amounts of growth. I thought I already knew a lot about Chinese, however after this class I was able to recognize areas of improvement. Just be prepared to do a lot of work.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to walk away with a better understanding of the language and culture. It was rewarding to be able to recall a number of different Chinese characters that we learned over the course of the semester.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Constantly practice writing the characters and doing all of the necessary work and you'll do fine.
