Teacher Hu is teaching China Today in Bend Senior High School. It's a course combining the Chinese language and Chinese culture. At the beginning of the new semester, the students knew almost nothing about China. They didn't know cities like Beijing and Shanghai. Now, they all have a basic knowlege of China such as its location, geography, histroy, population, food, major provinces and cities and so on. In the meantime, they've also learned how to do introductions of themselves, family members, schools, teachers and classmates in Chinese. Also, they now know some everyday greetings and expressions in Chinese.
Learning the Chinese language is a challenge for American students, but most of the students are working hard and some of them are doing very well in class. The students also show great interest in Chinese culture. Students in the pictures are making up and acting out the dialogues in Chinese.
