I've been teaching Chinese at Lincoln since 2000. I've been blessed with mostly very good students. I feel very honored to be part of their life during this precious stage---their teenage years.
Chinese 2 (Teresa Lui, Room128, Abraham Lincoln High School (415) 759-2700)
This is an intermediate class for students who have taken Chinese 1. The use of the pinyin system will be continued to help students with speaking and listening. Students will be guided to write more simple sentences. Students will also work with partners or in groups. The course will also emphasize in the learning of culture and communication. Students will also continue to learn more typing in Chinese and calligraphy.
Students will develop speaking, reading, listening and writing skills. They will also learn to communicate in simple sentences. They will participate in a wide variety of projects to gain practical insight and authentic use of the language. Students will learn to understand and appreciate the Chinese culture.
Students are expected to come to class prepared with a binder, pencils/pens, textbook and completed assignments. They are also expected to have a respectful attitude, and be attentive in class. They should have a binder with 3 sections as follows:
