At Golden Bear Education, we believe the best way to learn a foreign language is to immerse in the target language environment and use that language as the only way for communication. Therefore, students are constantly encouraged to only speak mandarin in GBE Mandarin Class. In order to provide students with ample time to practice the language, we schedule the mandarin class five days a week.
GBE Mandarin Class is designed for beginning, intermediate and advanced level students. The primary goal of this class is to develop students’ comprehensive mandarin abilities in listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students will learn various topics relating to everyday life, culture, literature, and history. Students will demonstrate their ability to express themselves in written and spoken mandarin Chinese by using authentic words, expressions and complex sentence structures. Students will work toward oral fluency through conversation, discussion, and oral presentations. Every semester, approximately 400 new characters will be taught to the beginning and intermediate level students, and about 600 new characters will be learned by the advanced level students.
Schedule Availability: Monday-Friday, Saturday Morning
