Students in Chinese II continue to focus on the four key areas of world language study: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Chinese II represents an ideal blend of language-learning pedagogy and online learning. Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing activities, Pinyin and tones, and interactive activities and practices that reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is a strong emphasis on providing context and conversational examples for the language concepts presented in each unit. Students should expect to be actively engaged in their own language learning, become familiar with common vocabulary terms and phrases, comprehend a wide range of grammar patterns, participate in simple conversations and respond appropriately to basic conversational prompts; analyze and compare cultural practices, products, and perspectives of various Chinese-speaking countries; and take frequent assessments during which their language progression can be monitored. The course has been carefully aligned to national standards as set forth by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). Students explore transportation; sports; restaurants; shopping and money; the home; adjectives and adverbs; weather; travel; the body; health and fitness; vacations; hobbies; daily activities, nature; computers and technology; and cooking.
