AP® Chinese Language and Culture provides deeper understanding and broader application of Chinese language and culture for advanced or heritage Chinese learners. This course focuses on applying Chinese language and cultural skills in real-world situations, and exploring a variety of topics in Chinese history, geography, music and arts, literature, daily life, and national and global issues. Students use team work, group online seminars, one-on-one conferences with the teacher, and a variety of engaging activities and experiential projects to meet individual needs. Students gain the high language proficiency and cultural competency to compare, examine, evaluate and solve conflicts successfully. Students may select the AP® or Advanced Chinese track. AP® students are expected to delve deeper into the topics, take AP®-style assessments, and prepare for the AP® exam. Advanced Chinese is recommended for students who have completed four or more years of Chinese but do not want to prepare for the AP® exam.
