Elementary Mandarin

Mandarin is a compulsory subject for all students in Kindergarten to 8th grade. The program is designed to help students build a solid foundation in learning Chinese language and culture.  With the four components in learning a language: listening, speaking, reading and writing,  elementary grades focus more on listening and speaking. When students are in middle school, the curriculum will build on reading and writing skills that are learned in elementary.  The goal of the middle school program is to prepare students with a strong foundation for high school Mandarin program. All students will graduate with Mandarin 1A, 1B or Mandarin 2 when they complete 8th grade. The three tracks of Mandarin are offered at the same time in the school schedule. Students are placed by level based on their language background and skill levels. Not only will students learn the essential knowledge and skills in the classroom, they are given opportunities to practice their language skills outside the classroom.  Students perform Mandarin songs, recite Bible verses and skits in various school events. Students have the opportunity to participate in the Chinese Language Teacher’s Association of California (CLTAC) speech contest to enrich their public speaking experience.
