<p>I want to learn Chinese so I can study acupuncture/Chinese medicine on the side.
But the Chinese class at Emory, I've heard, is insanely hard.
I can speak it fluently for daily conversation (born in China, lived there for 6 years before coming over here) but I don't have a diverse vocabulary or anything. As for the reading and writing part... I forgot all my characters. :/ I do know pinyin, though.</p>
<p>I want to go down the premed track, with a major in Bio and a minor in Visual Arts.
I also want to continue French (I've taken it for 5 years) and study abroad. Also, I plan to join the Taekwondo Club. </p>
<p>I can AP out of English (5), and perhaps Chem (4) So my Freshmen schedule might look like this:
<p>I'm just wondering if I should jump right into Chinese in the first semester. Also, if anyone has any information regarding the professors or coursework or workload, please feel free to share. ^^ Thank you!</p>
