- This is a writing/reading class focused on the same levels as native students in Taiwan. This is not the same level as Meizhou or Huayu systems. It is much harder. As reference, 4th and 5th grade in 美洲 is equivalent to our Level 2 course.
- Reading levels of the children in the class will be a lot higher than the chapter lessons that focuses on the writing as writing levels are always below writing levels. When a child can read a chapter book, it doesn't mean they can write every word they read. When you accumulate 2000-3000 characters in reading, many children in the US can only write about 100 characters. Our course is created to help those children catch up in writing but at the same time provided meaningful reading texts to follow their broader knowledge in reading.
- 30% of the class will be used for writing vocabulary, phrases, essays, worksheets, etc.
- 30% of the class will be used for reading and stories.
- 40% of the class will be used for idioms and other learning materials and activities.
