AP Chinese Language and Culture 

Terms: 3
Grades: 10,11,12,PG
Prerequisite: Chinese III Honors or Chinese IV Honors and recommendation of the department

This class is comparable to fourth semester college/university courses in Mandarin Chinese. AP Chinese is conducted exclusively in Chinese. The course prepares students to demonstrate their level of Chinese proficiency across the three communicative modes (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational) and the five goal areas (communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities). In preparation for the AP Chinese Language and Culture exam in May, students will be engaged in performance-based activities within age- and level-appropriate authentic cultural context. As the exam is a paperless Internet-Based Test (iBT), students will use their laptop to process everything (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in the course. 

All students are required to take the AP Chinese Language and Culture exam in May.
