GCLA1005 University Chinese 大學中文

  大學中文的三個單元,由基本到較高階的語文知名均有涉及。由於我之前從未接觸過辯論,故此當第二單元圍繞中辯時,我的確有感到過壓力。不過當在準備第十三周時實踐辯論時,似乎又未如想像中困難──辯論某程度上就如評判式閱讀的進階版。
  不過論最喜愛的,還是第三單元的錯別字、病句。導師先由一些字詞的意思開始,解構一些錯別字的來源;病句則由句子結構開始,再探討生活經常接觸的病句,使我們更容易的掌握改正方法。
  起初未上課時,我還覺得大學中文是個「補底」式的班,但上完課後才發現其實中文博大精深,還有很多可供發掘的地方!

(Translation) “University Chinese” covers 3 modules, from basic to advanced level. Since I have never tried debating before, I was so stressful when teachers talked about the 2nd module – Chinese debate. Yet, when I started to prepare for the real debate to be held in week 13, I realized that I can do it. Debating is just like an advanced level of critical reading.

But for my favourite part, it must be the 3rd module – common wording mistakes and problematic sentences. Started with meaning of words, the teacher explained the reasons for common mistakes in Chinese wordings. For the problematic sentences, we first learnt about sentence structure, and then we looked into the common grammatical mistakes we encountered in our daily lives. This made it easier for us to learn the methods to avoid such mistakes.

Before the lessons, I thought “University Chinese” is for those who are bad in Chinese. But now, I realize that there are still so much more for us to learn and explore about Chinese language.
