Chinese Language

Published on 8/18/2015

Welcome to learn Chinese.  Chinese language, along with the rapid development of China's economy, is becoming increasingly popular in the world.

This class  aims to teach communication in both spoken and written Chinese.  The objectives are to enable students to use Chinese in the classroom, playground, local community and countries where the Chinese language is spoken.

Teacher Profile

Ms. Fung-Tai Chen
Chinese Teacher Hs

This will be my 14th year in teaching, which has taken me from Taiwan to California and finally to Texas.   

I not only enjoy teaching Chinese, but also love the Chinese language and enjoy helping students explore this complex, yet unique language.  I hope students will take the Chinese they learn from this course and apply it out of the classroom. I have traveled all over the world and have seen how useful Chinese is across the globe. 

The Chinese language cannot be separated from its culture.  Therefore, I will integrate Chinese Calligraphy, field trips, and the celebration of major Chinese holidays to give students a taste of the rich culture of China.

E-mail is the best way to get in contact with me.
