Elementary Chinese 1 (Grades K-2)
This introductory Chinese course, designed specifically for young students, provides an engaging, interactive experience for a student's first exposure to the Chinese language. The content for each unit is based on an authentic story, myth or legend from Chinese-speaking cultures to introduce students to language and culture. This course focuses primarily on vocabulary acquisition, listening and speaking through stories, games, songs and practice activities. Students are exposed to Chinese language and Chinese-speaking cultures in a fun environment where they can explore meanings and begin to express themselves through simple words and phrases.
Middlebury Interactive courses are not credit-bearing.
Our online language courses have many task-based activities that give students instant feedback. However, the writing and speaking assignments in the courses are not automatically graded. If you would like all activities within the course to be graded, we would advise you to purchase the course with teacher support included.
