Why Take Chinese??
There are 1.5 billion reasons to

$1.00 from every person in China,
you would have 1.5 billion
dollars!!!
But isn’t Chinese hard?
NO! The Grammar is easy: There
are no conjugations and no
subject verb agreement. You don’t
have to remember how to spell
words. No plural changes to
nouns.
Word order is easy: What happens
first is said first.
We host visiting Chinese students
The Chinese teacher sings off key, dances off
rhythm, tells stories, and anything else that
might help students learn Chinese.
You have an opportunity
to travel to China.

Will you be a sophomore?
Do you plan to take an AP

The Social Studies & English / Language Arts Departments both
strongly recommend that you also enroll in Pre-AP English II.
