AP CHINESE is intended for students who wish to improve proficiency and integrate their language skills, using authentic materials and sources. Students who enroll should already have a basic knowledge of the language and cultures of Chinese-speaking peoples and should have attained a reasonable proficiency in using the language. Although these qualifications may be attained in a variety of ways, it is assumed that most students will be in the final stages of their secondary school training and will have had appropriate course work in the language. The course is taught almost exclusively in Chinese and incorporates authentic materials related to seven themes. The authentic materials include audio, print and audiovisual materials such as articles, videos, radio clips, social media, and short stories.
