Trinity-Pawling School Program in
Mandarin Chinese Language and Cultural Studies
Hello 21st Century 二十一世纪, 你好
As China assumes an increasingly important role in worldwide politics and economics, Trinity-Pawling School is proud to highlight a modern addition to the School's foreign language program. In September 2009, Trinity-Pawling School began a program of instruction in Mandarin Chinese Language and Cultural Studies.
A Commitment to Characters 对字体的坚持
Designed to meet the needs of beginning and intermediate language learners, the program taps very small student/teacher ratios and intense classroom instruction to foster students' proficiency in reading, writing and speaking in Mandarin.
The program begins by introducing students to the tones at the heart of the language, the production of characters and written text. In its upper-level phases, the program exposes students to the literature and culture of China, with an eye toward preparing them for an immersion experience.
