Final Skit

Chinese 102 Final Project: 短劇 Skit Assignment

One of the final projects for the class is a group skit performance. Students may choose to perform it live in class or present it in a video format. Video clips are uploaded to YouTube. (Some older video clips are uploaded to at

Scripts for all group skits will be posted. All scripts are edited. Please follow this format:
1) Title (English & Chinese);
2) Cast (roles & student names)
3) Scene-by-scene script that includes Chinese characters, Pinyin and stage directions in English;
4) English translation of each scene and a vocabulary list;
5) Email to in WORD (Sun Laoshi will review it before posting on the blog as a PDF file)

The skit should consist of at least 3 scenes  (about 10-15 exchanges in each scene).
Your group needs to first come up with a storyboard, characters and role plays (often other than yourself), and then work on the “dramatic” elements as well as linguistic elements together.  Video production will involve all group members to work as a team, obtaining the appropriate props, locating the right places to film, helping each other act out the characters and memorize the lines, and finally, editing the video. In-class presentation will place more emphasis on live performance, and it is up to each group to decide which production (live or video) they would prefer.

Timeline: (script writing drafts 20% + final version 30% + individual performance 25% + skit production group work  25%)
1) Storyboard: one-page written description in English – due last week of March

  1. Transition 前進樂團 new single 對不起我的中文不好。A song celebrating the mistakes Transition often made when learning to speak chinese. 前進樂團一開始來台灣有了一些溝通的問題然後寫了這首好玩的歌。(made by Danny & Stef Roberts)
