Chinese Mandarin 1

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Chinese 1 is an introduction to the Chinese language and culture. Students will become familiar with the Chinese pinyin system, Chinese radicals, characters, words, sentence patterns, and grammar that will enable them to begin to speak, read, understand, and write the Chinese language. Students will also study Chinese history, culture, and customs.

Note: We will add a course each year, starting with Chinese 1. Our plan is to add Chinese 2 next year, culminating with AP Chinese in future years.
