The goal of IB Chinese 5 is to take students to the next level in their proficiency. In Chinese 5, students will interact much more with authentic materials—both written and audio, from literature to culture—and be expected to be even more vocal, doing presentations, debates, and leading the class in discussions surrounding these materials and topics. In terms of producing Chinese, students will explore different and more sophisticated ways of expressing themselves and learn to use more advanced structures, particularly in their writing. Students will practice the process of writing short descriptive, reflective, and interpretive essays.
A summer assignment is required in preparation for this course.
