Advanced Topics in Chinese Language and Culture VI
This full-year course is taught in Chinese and is thematic in nature. It assumes strong foundational skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing, and will expand upon the AP themes introduced during the previous two years of study. As such, it covers a wide range of topics related to the history of China, contemporary Chinese life, and the Chinese speaking world. Specific units may vary from year to year depending upon current events. Course goals: Advanced Topics in Chinese Language and Culture seeks to provide students with a means of maintaining and building upon the fluency they have worked to gain during their years in ACPS. The study of content-rich topics organized around themes will provide students with the opportunity to broaden their understanding of the world and in particular that of the Chinese speaking world. Providing an uninterrupted sequence of language study will maximize the potential for student success at college.
