Chinese Language Courses

Description

Explore a world of opportunities by studying Chinese, the most widely spoken language in the world. Chinese is made up of many dialects, the primary one being Mandarin, which is spoken in mainland China, Singapore, and Taiwan. Mandarin Chinese characters represent one of the oldest writing systems in the world. Middlebury Interactive offers digital Chinese courses with both online and brick-and-mortar components. The offerings provide varying levels of immersion methodology to accommodate different world language objectives and learning styles. Courses are designed with the goal of language proficiency and aligned with national standards set by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

In our online Chinese courses, K-12 students focus on the four key areas of world-language study: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The extensive use of authentic video, audio, images or texts allows for a contextualized and interactive experience with the vocabulary and linguistic structures. Courses actively engage students in completing a variety of activities, practices, tasks and assessments. Cultural information relevant to Chinese-speaking countries and communities and robust cross-cultural reflections are infused throughout the materials from beginning to end. Recognition and practice of simplified Chinese characters are a key focus of the course and students learn several characters in each unit. Pinyin is often presented with characters to aid in listening and reading comprehension. Courses start at $119.
