Course Catalog ID:
Subject Categories:
Global Language, Honors

Huan Ying! Welcome to Chinese 2! This course will strengthen the foundation that is built in Chinese 1 by continuing to review past topics and building upon them with new topics. New topics include talking about the weather, food, directions, travel, and more! We will also learn new grammar structures and improve each student’s listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Reading and writing will be done in simplified Chinese characters with traditional texts and vocabulary available for reference. We will continue to discuss many interesting facets of Chinese culture and life. Through this course students will gain confidence and comfort in using Chinese. They will know enough about the language and culture to decide whether they want to take their Chinese learning journey to the next level!

Reviews from Students and Parents

“I took Chinese 1 as a Freshman and just finished Chinese 3 as a Junior. I have loved every minute of it! The teacher is terrific and does a wonderful job teaching students to speak, read and understand Chinese as well as explore Chinese culture. If you are interested in learning Chinese or becoming more proficient, I recommend you take this class!”

“This was the best Chinese course I have done. I have tried other courses but it isn’t the same. I highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to be able to speak, read, and write basic Chinese.”
