Chinese

Instead of just sitting and listening to the teacher’s lecture, the students in Chinese class have a much more interesting and active class. The Chinese course includes two parts: the Rosetta Stone program, which is great for immersion into a foreign language and culture; and Mrs. Jang’s lectures, exams, and other communication activities which teach the class enough Chinese to raise our Mandarin level. In addition, Mrs. Jang is a very understanding and considerate teacher who strives to fit our senior year schedule. Rosetta Stone not only teaches us new vocabulary words and basic grammatical rules related to daily life, it also lets students practice the pronunciations of various words. After finishing the Rosetta Stone lessons, Mrs. Jang regularly makes the class talk in Chinese using terms learned through the Rosetta Stone program, and she kindly helps everyone with their grammar and pronunciation. The combination of the Rosetta Stone program and Mrs. Jang’s assistance and teaching skills present a unique chance to develop Chinese speaking skills. She also administers practice for each lesson, which helps us check what we know. All of the material is pulled directly from the program, so we can go back to practice what was missed. Chinese class is also unique and enjoyable because we are able to experience Chinese culture as well. Last semester, students went to Four Seasons, a Chinese restaurant. It was the first time many of us had northern Chinese cuisine, and at the restaurant we learned how to make dumplings. It was such a great experience! This trip allowed us to gain an understanding between the northern and southern style cuisines. Mrs. Jang also taught us about the similarities and differences between China and Korea in class, especially with regard to language. For example, there is a word in Chinese, “(nin),” that has a Korean counterpart which refers to elders. The ability to learn about China through these teaching methods, coupled with the fact that the seniors in the Chinese class are all friendly and respectful, goes to show how important and entertaining Chinese class is within our curriculum. Chinese class at Saipan International School not only teaches students how to learn both independently and dependently, it also touches on some aspects of Chinese culture and language. Mrs. Jang is such a wonderful teacher who always answers our questions with detailed explanations and helps us work on our developing pronunciation of various Chinese words. 謝謝, 張老師!
