Our young adult program classes for middle and high school students focus on developing students’ comprehensive Chinese language skills. Combining formal instruction with a conversation-based approach to the language, we develop students’ speaking and listening skills through age-appropriate activities. Students also learn pinyin, the Romanization system for Chinese characters. Lessons are also designed to improve students’ reading skills through visual learning, including reading and writing Chinese characters.
In this program, we work with students of all abilities, from beginner through advanced. We are able to prepare students to take the AP Chinese Language and Culture exam and potentially earn college credit in modern languages.
