Chinese Courses

Are You Thinking about taking a Chinese language class?

Mandarin is one of four language courses offered in the Modern Language Department of the Fremont Union High School District. The District’s Mandarin courses are designed to serve the needs of students at a variety of levels of experience with the language. Some students enter the program with little or no exposure to Mandarin; others may have been exposed to Chinese at home or in a community Chinese school, but may not know how to read, write, or speak the language well. Still others know Mandarin quite well, but are interested in going deeper into their study and use of the language.

Most of our high schools offer year-long courses at four levels: Chinese 1, 2, 3, and 4 (Honors). If enrollment warrants it, classes are sometimes offered that combine students from more than one level in a single class. Classes are designed to prepare students to meet the recommended California content standards for Modern Language which are based on standards for foreign language classes established by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Advanced Placement Chinese was offered for the first time in the 2006-2007 school year. This course is designed to prepare students for the Advanced Placement exam in Chinese Language and Culture that was also offered for the first time in 2006-2007.
