    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Speaking from a high school student's point of view, Professor Ma's Chinese 102 course was a great introduction to college. She was amazing at explaining the new material and made you speak out loud to cement the vocab and pronunciation in your brain. This was a 6 credit course, so there was a lot of work involved to keep pace with the material given, but after taking small vocabulary tests, chapter exams, a group presentation, and the final exam, the feeling of success completely outweighs the exhaustion from studying for hours.

    Course highlights:

    Chinese 102 focused on chapters 6-10 in "Integrated Chinese" Level 1 Part 1. There was a huge emphasis on really learning the (simplified) Chinese characters. There would be a Character book assignment due in the beginning of the chapter, along with a Work book assignment. During class, Professor Ma would review the characters with the class, and have us read the dialog out loud without pinyin. I am very grateful since she was extremely thorough and would talk to you individually if you weren't understanding the material given.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're thinking about testing into Chinese 102, as I did, you need to have a firm grasp on "Integrated Chinese" Level 1 Part 1 chapters 1-5. The textbook, workbook, and character book are all available at University of Massachusetts Boston's bookstore, online, or at Cheng & Tsui's location in Boston, Massachusetts. Take advantage of Professor Ma's office hours, she is extremely kind and will help you with your work willingly. Finally, work as hard as you can. I studied for 2+ hours each day after class and I received a 4.0. It pays off.
