The Confucius Classroom at North Attleboro High School is focused on educating students and the community about Chinese language and culture through the two Mandarin Chinese classes it offers:

Chinese I: The course introduces students to the rudiments of the Chinese language. The acquisition of the basic grammar and vocabulary necessary to speak, to read, to write and to understand the spoken word would form the core of the first year of this program. Students would gain an awareness of Chinese culture and history through a variety of multi-media sources. 

Chinese II: This course serves to reinforce the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills acquired in the first year of the program.  In addition, this course would introduce the more advanced grammatical concepts and the additional vocabulary necessary for the acquisition of communicative proficiency.  Students would be expected to participate daily in the target language as well as to produce and to present oral and written work.  Cultural understanding and appreciation would be enhanced through the study of Chinese history, customs and culture.
