Grade 7


Seventh grade is to prepare students for the advanced Chinese class. The class will be structured as following: each semester there will be 6 chapters split into 2 different sections. We will take two weeks per each chapter. By the end of the year, we will have learned 12 chapters total. Throughout the year, student will be introduced to basic grammar usage, sentence patterns, and idiom usage. We will focus on improving students’ PinYin in order to build a good foundation to help with Chinese typing on the computer. We will also learn how to use the Chinese dictionary. While learning Chinese, we will also discuss Chinese culture, history, and traditions. We will be teaching the class in Mandarin and only use English if necessary. Student should have basic speaking and reading skills in Chinese.
