Chinese Language

Our Chinese program is designed to meet the National Standards in Foreign Language Education (5C: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, & Communities) based on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) integration of language learning into three levels. At that high school level, students have class five days week; from kindergarten to middle school students meet around 2 – 3 times a week.

Our overall program approach:

Over all training steps will be applied so as to enable students to speak standard Chinese Mandarin, to build up a solid vocabulary base and master common expressions and basic grammar in writing through texts and supplementary sources.

The course gives full information of pinyin, including Pin Yin alphabet (initials and finals) as well as the pronunciation methods and standard pronunciation. For level three and four, students will learn how to key-in characters by using PINYIN system on MS system.

Through an integrated learning, students will have a good understanding of basic grammar, so as to be able to write proper paragraph/ short articles in proper Chinese.

The course will also train and encourage students to successfully attend proficiency tests or competitions of Chinese language, such as SAT-Chinese, AP-Chinese and Chinese language art competitions in Bay Area.
