Students with 2~3 years of Chinese language education will learn to read and write short journals and make presentations in Chinese on selected topics. The students will have classes in Chinese culture, history and geography through written and multimedia materials.
Students with at least 5 years of Chinese language education will develop further language proficiency in Chinese. Based on a solid understanding of Chinese culture, history and geography, the students will present information, concepts, and ideas to an audience on a variety of topics, and demonstrate understanding of the nature of language through comparison of the Chinese language with their native language. They will be able to express themselves by utilizing strong Chinese skills of “how, what and when” in fluent Chinese.
