Class Description

This course is intermediate Chinese and the continuation of Chinese III.  In Chinese AP, students review and expand the materials of Chinese I-III and continue on vocabulary and grammar structures building.  The focus of content will be expanded to more abstract and include more societal phenomena to help students better understand current Chinese society, such as caring for others, expressing appreciation and anger, etiquette and manners, applying and choosing a job, participating in a job interview, as well as prose and poetic expressions.  Students will be able to discuss, compare, and analyze cultural differences.  Students will also be exposed to various communicative situations, such as basic summary, description, discussion, and reporting.  Students will be given the opportunity to explore modern Chinese songs and films, as well as Chinese Internet sites.  Students are expected to use as much Chinese as possible.  This AP course will prepare students to successfully take the AP Exam and/or college placement tests.
