This course is offered during Session C -- June 23 to August 15.
This intensive course is designed using a combined approach between grammatical structure and functional instruction. Through intensive drills on basic phonology, grammar and vocabulary usages, working with both multi-media materials and inter-personal interaction during regular class meetings and lab hours, students will develop proficiency in all four language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing).
This intensive course is the equivalence of two regular semesters of Vietnamese for beginners (Viet 1A and 1B). By the end of the course, students will attain the same proficiency level equals to one full year study of introductory Vietnamese: being able to converse with confidence, read and write short texts of moderate difficulty on everyday topics. As a result, students will be linguistically self-sufficient when visiting the country, and ready to matriculate into Intermediate Vietnamese upon having completed this course.
