For the literature buffs! Learn to read classical Chinese, and also get exposure to the broad range of Chinese literature from the earliest poetry through the great novels of the Ming and Qing periods. Each course is equivalent to a semester-length university course! Includes:
- ● Intro to Classical Chinese: learn the basic grammar of Classical Chinese and get familiar with the language through 16 progressively more challenging authentic texts
- ● Intermediate Classical Chinese: take it further with another 16 more challenging (and very famous) readings, progressing in length until you're reading long passages and even full chapters
- ● Intro to Premodern Chinese Literature: a survey of Chinese literature from the earliest poetry through the great novels of the Ming and Qing periods. Readings in English with the original Chinese also provided.
Each course includes 30-40+ hours of video lessons and Q&A sessions, plus extensive reading selections and course communities where you can discuss with other students!
The courses are all self-paced and you get lifetime access, so you can go through them on your own schedule!
