Founded in 1982, the Chinese School of Chinese Community Church of Indianapolis (CSCCCI) has decades of experience in promoting Chinese language and culture through the Chinese language classes held on Sunday afternoons. In addition to the lessons from the curriculums, CSCCCI provides learning experiences through various academic contests (composition, story-telling contests), festivals (Chinese New Year, Moon Festival), and fun activities (Summer Camp, Chinese Word Quiz). Valuable life lessons are provided to students during one-hour Bible classes throughout the year.
CSCCCI offers the following classes for the fall of 2022:
Culture and Language class uses a theme-based approach to learn Chinese and focuses on speaking. The Culture and Language Class is suggested for students, ages 8 and up, who are from non-Chinese speaking families.
Kindergarten Class is suggested for students age 4-6. In this class, the students learn Chinese through nursery rhymes, songs and poems.
Elementary Beginning Class (Levels 1 & 2) is suggested for students age 6-8. In this class, the students learn some basic Chinese characters and read Chinese with phonics (pinyin).
Elementary Advanced Class (Levels 3 & 4) is suggested for students age 8-10. In this class, the students build up their Chinese vocabulary by reading Chinese characters with less phonics (pinyin).
Intermediate Class (Level 5) is suggested for students age 10-12. In this class, the students expand their vocabulary, enhance reading comprehension and learn basic Chinese grammar.
Advanced Pre-AP Class (Levels 6-8) is suggested for middle school students. The class uses the book Integrated Chinese to focus on conversation, grammar, and writing.
AP Chinese Preparation II Class (focusing on listening and reading) uses Harvest Intermediate Chinese and other resources to help students prepare for the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam.
