• In grades 1 through 4, our students are introduced to Mandarin Chinese. Each week, students participate in a 45-minute class within a 6-day cycle in Chinese language and culture.

    The Chinese program is a content-related program consisting of thematic, linguistic and cultural units. The emphasis is on the development of listening and speaking skills at the novice level, as well as vocabulary building using a variety of techniques, such as total physical response, story telling, dialog and role play, folktales, games, songs and special projects. Please see grade level webpages for expectations and course calendars of topics to be studied each month.
