Chinese as a Foreign Language Syllabus

Average: 4 (1 vote)

This is my syllabus for Chinese 1 at Audubon Charter School. Mandarin was introduced this year as a second foreign language.

My mission is to introduce the students to Chinese as a foreign language and to have them exposed to some Chinese culture.

Chinese is considered a “critical language”, and studying Chinese will provide students with more opportunities in the future. Besides, to study a foreign language is an important way to open our mind to the modern world, to appreciate cultural differences and to establish mutual understanding.

This course is built on a realistic progression in which the students are acquiring tools to express themselves in Chinese as much as knowledge of the Chinese speaking world, and culture.
