Mandarin 1B class is a continuation of Mandarin study from the 7th Grade. Students will be exposed to increasingly complex vocabulary and sentence structures and will explore more diverse topics, such as time, weather, travel, school life, Chinese study etc. Emphasis is placed simultaneously on all four major linguistic practices—speaking, listening, writing, and reading. Students will also enhance their language proficiency through reading and story-telling. Students will learn to use the language through real-life projects. Cultural aspects of the language are emphasized through presentations, discussions, hands-on activities and focused projects throughout the year.
