AP Chinese Language and Culture
To prepare for AP Chinese, it is highly suggested you do some review over the summer. There is one assignment on this Google Doc, but you should also plan to regularly interact with the Mandarin language in some way to keep up your skills. That can be reading news or stories, watching shows or videos, listening to audio recordings, or practicing writing. There are many resources online to help you improve your Mandarin, but the following is a selection of options.
为了准备AP中文课,我强烈建议你暑假时复习一下中文。你只要做一个任务(看Google Doc),但你还应该为了保持你说中文的能力来计划以某种方式来复习中文。你可以看新闻、阅读故事、看电视节目或别的视频、听录音或者练习写作。在网上能找到许多资源来帮你,但以下有一些选择。
