Welcome to the Chinese classes!
    Chinese 1, 2, and 3 courses will enable the students to learn the art of speaking conversational Mandarin Chinese. The students will practice listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the Chinese language. The students will build their language skills by using expressions, vocabulary, and grammar so that they may FUNCTION at a basic communicative level in Mandarin Chinese. The students will also learn about different Chinese-speaking countries and the various cultures that exist within those countries as well as here in the U.S.

    For this class, you will need:

    • 1. One 1.5"  three-ring binder or a section of a bigger binder
    • 2. A paper notebook (We will use the OneNote class notebook for taking notes and practicing. You can ask for a paper copy if you want.) 
    • 3. Flashcards (Optional, if you prefer to write vocabulary on paper cards. We will use Quizlet.com for learning vocabulary.)

    Daily Expectations for Students

    • Focus in class
    • Participate in class and try your best to speak out
