Can I skip Beginning Chinese 1?
So I want to take Beginning Chinese 2 for Summer B. The pre-req is Beginning Chinese 1, which is offered Summer A. Problem: I'm starting as a freshman in Summer B.
The earliest Chinese placement test would be the first week of the Fall semester...I was wondering if there was any way to skip Beginning Chinese 1 and be enrolled into the Chinese 2 class?
I was born and raised here in the US, but I speak fluent Mandarin with my parents who emigrated from Taiwan. I can read and write basic characters...but I believe that I know enough to be able to handle Beginning Chinese 2.
