China's Ancient Culture: Another interesting course

Recommended Posts

abcdefg

Was on the Coursera website for another reason this morning (starting "Classics of Chinese Humanities") and stumbled across a link which led to an offering by Peking University that looked interesting.  Title was "China's Ancient Culture."

 

This one is taught in Chinese by six different lecturers. Here's the link: https://www.coursera.org/course/pkuacc

 

I won't be taking it. Already have enough on my plate with the Harvard X China history course and the Chinese humanities course. Furthermore, doubt my Chinese would be adequate for the task.

 

Nonetheless, it might be of interest to more advanced learners.

Thanks for the heads-up! That will definitely be useful for me since I'm starting my Chinese History Master's this month!

 

I have watched half the lecture videos for the 秦始皇 course on Coursera, it's excellent. The lecturer is one of the most engaging I've ever seen, Chinese or non-Chinese.

Sounds like it would be a good fit for you, @TooIronic. 

 

Things like this make me wish I had kept struggling with 书面语 instead of just being satisfied with daily living fluency. That would have opened other doors.
