Did you know every 1 of 5 people speak Chinese today?

Many people believe learning Chinese is difficult, but our students would disagree :-)

Students in this semester course will build a solid foundation in their first year Mandarin Chinese study using "Integrated Chinese", a leading introductory Chinese textbook for US high schools and universities. With an emphasis on practicing a broad range of written and verbal communication skills and building cultural understanding, this popular curriculum has a proven record of success in developing students' listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, as well as building great proficiency using Chinese in a variety of real-life situations.

Topics covered in Level 1, Part 1 can be viewed here: https://www.cheng-tsui.com/browse/textbooks/integrated-chinese-third-edition/integrated-chinese-level-1-part-1-3rd-ed-textbook?id=20468#field-specs

Before coming to each class, students will use their digital textbook, audio files, online flashcards and other resources to prepare for their participation in our weekly live sessions. Our small sized class encourages each student to practice actively with me and with one another, and their daily homework assignments enable them to master vocabulary and grammar study systematically. For homeschooling students, daily assignments and language practice time can qualify for 0.5 units of high school credit per semester.

In addition to our regular weekly lecture, we are offering our students an additional verbal practice session this year on Thursdays 10-11 am. Attendance is optional and our students have the option to send in audio recording for my feedback if they can't make it to the practice session. Upon enrollment, you may also check to see if our other weekly practice sessions are available if Thursdays do not work for your student.

Students completing Integrated Chinese Level 1 & 2 (a total of 4-semester study) have the prerequisite to take our SAT and/or AP Chinese preparation course. Many US colleges are also using the Integrated Chinese curriculum, and our students have received Credits by Exam from their universities and/or credits if taking the AP Chinese exam

Grading is optional and provided FREE of charge for your students, and a certificate of completion is issued in May each year upon completion of the school year.

Class recordings are available within 24 hours for review or if a student misses a live session.

Tuition balance in 2 installments of $60 is due in February & March 2018

Full payment for the semester course for $180 is also available (see listing in "other product")

Live CLASS REQUIREMENTS:

Our weekly live class will meet in CurrClick's Live Virtual Classroom. Students will need a headset with microphone to be able to hear and speak to me, as well as verbally practice Mandarin during the class.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
