Weekend Chinese Class
The weekend Chinese class has
been the main program of New York Beijing Chinese School.
Our weekend Chinese class selectively use very practical,
systematic, and highly scientific “Chinese” teaching material,
and uses relatively highly concentrated teaching materials
that are arranged for 1 year and three semesters in order
to improve the speed and efficiency of the teaching. Currently,
our school has various programs of the “Chinese” teaching
class, and according to the demand of the oversea Chinese
teaching, we have established the pre-school class for kids
that are over four years old, weekday classes, 1st to 12th
grade classes, High School Division, and “One on One” special
English classes, maybe provide customized teaching according
to the various levels of students. We have hired experienced,
loving, and responsible teachers to teach each Chinese classes.
There are four obvious characteristics
for the Chinese teaching of our school:
1. Select highly practical, systematic
sets of teaching materials, accommodate with flexible student
homework and practicing material booklets, improve the interests
and confidence that students have for learning Chinese,
and enable students to obtain the basic Chinese expressing
ability within a very short amount of time.
2. Targeting the continuous connecting characteristics
of the study of language, our school has designed a teaching
arrangement of 1 year three semesters (fall, spring, and
summer). Such highly intensive arrangement of teaching contents
could prevent students from forgetting the Chinese knowledge
due to the long vacations, and significantly improve the
study efficiency and quality of the students.
3. During our teaching, we focus on the overall improvement
of listening, speech, reading, and writing, and we train
students for their self studying ability, thus establish
a very solid foundation for the long term of Chinese studies
of the students in the future.
4. Solid strength of faculty and capital, strict teaching
management system. We set very high standards of selecting
teachers with both good morals and high talents, and we
have very clear teaching requirements and periodical teaching
Every March and November, we organize our students to
participate in the annual simulation SATII exam in the Chinese
language and a simulation Han Language Level Test (HSK)
– a test designed by the Ministry of Education of the People’s
Republic of China to evaluate the level of Chinese attained
by foreign students learning Chinese (popularly dubbed the
“Chinese TOEFL”), which is an objective evaluation standard
for students learning Chinese. During the above examinations,
students with excellent grades could obtain full scholarship
provided by the government, and travel to China for study
tour during the summer vacation.
In Chinese teaching, Beijing Chinese School highly focuses
on the overall training of listening, speech, reading, and
writing, to ensure our teaching quality. The mid level students
of our school could read very easy Chinese readings. The
senior students could publish their writings in the Chinese
newspapers. Our students have numerously participated in
the All American simulation SAT II exam in Chinese language,
HSK examinations and obtained very good grades. Many students
have won awards during various Chinese writing and reading
competitions. After six years of diligent studies, students
could complete their study.
Beijing Chinese School demands its graduates
to qualify in all of the following four areas:
1. Completion of the 12 “Chinese” textbooks and passing
corresponding tests satisfactorily.
2. Receive a score of 700 or more (out of 800) in the
SAT II Chinese simulation test.
3. Receive a medium or higher score in the HSK exam, which
is the Chinese Ministry of Education’s evaluation test of
foreign students in their knowledge of Chinese.
4. Publish at least five writings in Chinese-language
newspapers or magazines.

above are approved for graduation from the Beijing Chinese

culture which flaws far along the river of the history.

went, they’d make friends with the excellent students over
there and become pen-pals with each other. After a short
term of travel study tour, our children have establish sincere

country the great China.
