28 Mandarin Chinese K-12The goal of IL Texas is that our students (starting with us from elementary) be fluent in reading, writing, listening, and speaking Mandarin Chinese. Our objective is for every one of our students to successfully complete Chinese I, Chinese II, Chinese III, and AP Chinese IV or Dual Credit College Chinese I by the end of their 12th grade year.
29 Language Proficiency Assessment System Student’s language proficiency will be assessed in the following four domains:ListeningSpeakingReadingWriting
31 STANDARDS FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING (ACTFL) Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in our increasingly more global world. This imperative envisions a future in which ALL students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and another language. In the case of ILT, our kids will be proficient in English and two other languages, Spanish and Chinese.National Standards on Foreign Language Education-American Council on Teaching Foreign Languages
