Chinese Level 4/5 Fall (4th - 8th grade)

The course of Chinese 4/5 is designed for students who are interested in learning Mandarin Chinese and Chinese culture. It will be taught by Ms. Grace Ko, the same LLL teacher who has been teaching at Las Lomitas Elementary School for more than 8 years. The goal of this class is to develop students’ communication skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing through various learning activities such as role-plays, language games, and task-oriented exercises, etc. Chinese culture is integrated into the curriculum to help students develop intercultural awareness. Learning themes are practical and connected to daily life. In addition to the textbook, web-based texts and authentic materials are applied to enhance students’ language skills. Oral and written assessments are used to evaluate student progress and achievement. The teacher modifies teaching strategies weekly to best meet students’ needs. Students build confidence in communicating in Mandarin through instructional practices.
