Course Overview

Our online middle school Mandarin Chinese 2 course helps students continue to develop their skills with instruction equivalent to that found in the second semester of high school Chinese I. With a focus on listening, speaking, reading and writing, each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing activities, multimedia cultural presentations and task-based activities to reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is a strong emphasis on providing context and conversational examples for the language concepts presented in each unit. Both Chinese characters and pinyin are presented together throughout the course, and specific character practices are introduced after the first quarter. Students will gain familiarity with common vocabulary terms and phrases, comprehend a wider range of grammar patterns, participate in simple conversations, analyze and compare cultural practices and perspectives of various Chinese-speaking countries and take frequent assessments.

This course is built to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) standards.
