Level 2 (CP)

The goals of Level 2 courses are to be able to communicate in the target language in simple sentences and to handle simple transactions related to everyday life. The four language areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing continue to be developed with an emphasis on expanding vocabulary and improving the student’s ability to understand and use important grammatical concepts. Language usage and cultural knowledge continue to be developed through the sequential building of the interpretive, interpersonal and presentational modes of communication. At the completion of a Level 2 course, the majority of students are expected to perform in the Novice-High range of language proficiency.  Students enrolled in these courses are expected to communicate primarily in the target language in class.

*In Level 2 Chinese, writing in simplified or traditional characters will be further developed. Reading text is based on Chinese characters with some Pinyin Romanization.
