This course discusses the selected Chinese classic works related to literature, cultural heritage and history, as well as their historical context, genre and major characteristics. Studying the classics is the best and most effective way to understand the core values and spirit of Chinese literature, cultural heritage and history which form the basis of the minds and behaviours of the Chinese people at large, both past and present. In addition, all selected works are written in both ancient and modern Chinese. It aims to enhance students' Chinese ability in order to provide a good foundation for their learning in the forthcoming four years.
