(VII) Class Requirements
We offer equal trainings on the listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. We teach pinyin and we only teach and use traditional characters. And we emphasize a lot on hand writing. Students are required to “write” homework and exams.
Teachers only speak Chinese in class (regardless the class levels).
Please be prepared for the school workload. There are homework, quizzes, midterm, final exam, etc. Students need to be concentrated and devoted to their classes and learning, and actively participate in the class activities.
We assess students’ level and learning every season, which will be taken into consideration for the class arrangement in the coming season. Those who have poor school performance may be held back and repeat a lower level.
