Passport to China
The “Passport to China” program is designed for beginners who are non-heritage speakers from ages 5-14. The primary goal of this course is to build a solid foundation for learning Chinese as a foreign language and to develop students’ long-term interest in the language. Students will meet twice every week and each week will have a different theme. Students will learn the language through history and culture with respect to China’s various geographies; every two weeks will have a different “travel stop” for students to explore. At the end of program, students will be able to use basic Chinese sentences to greet, talk to family, refer to locations in China, and much more. There is a maximum of 12 students for each class.
Chinese Reading Class (Picture book and Fairy tale readings for 4-9 years old)
This course is based on interesting literacy research and adopts student-centered multi-interactive teaching methods to promote a balanced development of listening, speaking, as well as reading and writing to guide students towards proficient and lifelong learning.
Here, we follow the “Balanced Literacy” strategy which strikes a balance between both written language and phonics. The strongest elements of each are incorporated into this literacy program that aims to guide students toward proficient and lifelong reading. There are five different components of balanced literacy: the read aloud, guided reading, shared reading, independent reading, and word study. Books that will be covered are listed below:
· <<Book is Sweet>> for 4 to 6-year-old, containing 30 picture stories
· <<Chinese Fairy Tale Reading>> is for 6 to 9-year-old, containing 7 Fairy Tale stories
Rubik's Cube Building ( for 8 to 14-year-old, dealing with Chinese science fiction)
Good reading habits and reading ability are the basis for improving writing ability. Through reading and appreciating the famous Chinese writer " Fairy Tale King" Mr. Zheng Yuanjie's chapter work " Rubik's Cube Building", this course will open a door to the Rubik's Cube world for students and lead them through a series of explorations in the magical and mysterious Rubik's Cube world. Through the teaching of this course, students will not only appreciate the extensive and profound Chinese language and culture, but also stimulate their imagination, fully mobilize students' initiative and enthusiasm in learning Chinese, and on this basis, improve their reading interest and self-reading level, break through the real problem of long gap period in summer Chinese learning, enrich summer life with interesting reading, break through the bottleneck of reading, and make summer vacation no longer boring.
Chinese AP Class
The purpose of this class is to help all students who want to take part in the 2021 Chinese AP and all Chinese learners who want to enhance their knowledge of Chinese listening, speaking, reading, writing, and culture. In order to ensure the quality of teaching, students must satisfy the following admission requirements: For students whose first language is not Chinese, they must have at least three or more years of learning experience combined with excellent results, be able to speak Chinese, and type using PinYin. For students of Chinese heritage, they must have completed Chinese school grade 7 or above with excellent results. Chinese students below grade 7 can take the examination to matriculate into the program.
The quality of courses is our foundation! To this end, Education Connects Group has hired a group of senior teachers with many years of teaching experience in Chinese AP. The teaching materials will use the combination of reference books and self-compiled materials to enable students not only to know the examination and grading standards, but also to know the examination strategies and skills, and complete the topic training under the guidance of teachers, thus laying a good foundation for autonomous learning and examination preparation after the start of school.
