Transferable: CSU; UC
This is first semester Intermediate Vietnamese. It is designed for students who have completed Vietnamese 402 or three years of high school Vietnamese. It provides refinement of skills attained in 402. Students will work toward the ability to create with the language without relying on learned responses, to understand main ideas in routine speech and to understand main ideas in written texts. Listening and reading comprehension continue to develop; speaking and writing will be comprehensible to a somewhat sympathetic native speaker. Students will develop the ability to respond in an unrehearsed manner on concrete topics in known situations. Written expression will meet limited personal needs in culturally-appropriate language at a higher level of accuracy than found in 402. Students will continue acquisition of knowledge of geography, culture and people of regions where Vietnamese is spoken and of Vietnamese speakers' contributions to North American and world cultures.
