2 Semesters / 1 Credit
Requirements: Completion of both semesters of Chinese 4.
The AP Chinese course is designed to prepare students for their successful performance on the AP exam. Students who score well usually earn college credit for Chinese courses at the college level, based on the AP policy of the student’s chosen college. Students will intensively practice spoken and written Chinese in the assigned activities in three aspects: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational. Students are expected to be able to write about a variety of topics and engage in conversations to provide and obtain information, express feelings, exchange opinions, and make presentations. Due to the knowledge that “Chinese culture” makes up a significant part of the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam, students will also learn important components of Chinese culture, including social practices and products.
