FLC4010T: Chinese II (2014-2015)

CURRICULUM PROGRAM: Virtual School Program
COURSE TITLE: Chinese II (Mandarin)
CALENDAR YEAR: 2014-2015

Major Concepts/Content:

This course is designed to provide activities, projects, and experiences that enable students to appreciate and value the target language culture. In this course, students build on their previous learning experience while expanding their knowledge of Chinese language and culture and developing their communication skills. Grammar, idiomatic expressions and lexicon are taught in context so that students use them to convey meaning in the three modes of communication: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational.

Major linguistic principles and language skills covered in level II include the following: usage of singular and plural nouns and interrogative, definite, indefinite, demonstrative and possessive adjectives; identifying and using the active voice in the indicative mood; identifying and using the imperative, the future tense, all forms of the past tense, progressives, and the subjunctive mood; identifying and using subject pronouns, direct object pronouns, indirect object pronouns, and the emphatic, reflexive, interrogative, demonstrative, and relative pronouns; identifying and using the most common prepositions; identifying and using comparison of adjectives; and identifying and using the formation of adverbs.

The content of Chinese II includes teaching students to follow specific directions given in the target language, and to understand main ideas after listening to presentations on familiar topics. Students learn to speak in the target language using basic sentence patterns correctly, read a variety of materials in the target language, and demonstrate writing skills in the target language. Each unit introduces cultural aspects and events, verbs and verb tenses, sentence structure, oral and written practice.
