Mrs. Lan's middle school Mandarin Chinese classes!
Mrs. Lan teaches Chinese 6a, 7, 7a, 8, and 8a at SHMS and Chinese A and Chinese C at RMS.
Some topics students will study are...
Chinese C / Chinese 8a -- Sports and hobbies, household objects, prepositions, other language names in Chinese, places around the school, transportation, and directions. We will use the "Discovering Chinese" textbook as well as read chapters from the reader "Poor Anna."
ALL STUDENTS will learn to read and write using Chinese characters, listen and speak in Mandarin Chinese, and tell stories in Chinese. All students will learn how to answer and ask questions in Chinese. All students will learn Chinese songs.
We need all students to be risk takers in the classroom, be caring, and be principled human beings.
HIGH SCHOOL CHINESE: Chinese 2 in the high school is a challenging course for an incoming freshman. My recommendation is that students that have maintained a "C" average or higher are encouraged to register for Chinese 2 in high school. If students have not maintained C averages or higher throughout middle school, they should retake Chinese 1 in high school. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions.
Students who successfully complete this course (C average or better) can advance to the next level of Chinese.
