    To students considering this course: STUDY. even if it is only going over vocab for 30 minutes. It is important to stay on top work in this class. It will also be very rewarding once you complete this course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I grew in my Chinese speaking abilities to the point that I was able to talk to native speakers when I went to China with the school last summer.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the opportunities I was presented with such as reaching out to foreign exchange students, being in Chinese NHS, and going to China. I continued learning advanced grammar as well as about modern culture in China. Learning to read more advanced texts and also learning to read a text or understand oral directions when you do not know all of the words and sentence structures is a key part of this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always study! Keep reviewing basic Chinese and practice reading and writing every day. Listening to Chinese music and watching Chinese TV is an easy and fun way to study. If you can download an app like WeChat to connect with Chinese people or talk to Chinese exchange students at your school, do it! The best way to get better is to use the language in real life.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is interactive and rich with culture. All the students have been involved with the curriculum for several years so we are pushing ourselves to learn.

    Course highlights:

    We are learning how to read, write and speak Mandarin. Being a vastly different culture than ours, it is a great experience. The language component is a huge transition where none of the characters are similar to English and pronunciation and intonation are really important. Learning the different tones is very important and practicing daily has really helped us all.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I have started slowly and have become more comfortable over the years. Since I was in third grade I have taken classes and have had exposure over a long period of time to help me.
