Providence Chinese supplements the teaching of Providence University, using advanced online tools that review the material taught in class through different activities. Each activity is designed to test key areas of the students' ability to learn Chinese. Students choose the book and lesson that they are currently working on, then use the following tools:
Observe all the new characters for each lesson including their stroke order. Practice writing the character on your own, until you are able to write it without assistance.
Tests: Writing ability
Rearrange the words given to form a proper sentence.
Tests: Grammar and sentence patterns.
A question will be asked, that reviews vocabulary taught in this lesson. Listen to the question, then type your answer in the space provided. When all questions from a lesson are completed, your answers will be emailed to your teacher for evaluation.
Tests: Listening and typing skills
Take a multiple choice quiz, and match the word shown with its Pinyin equivalent. Or listen to a word and choose which word it represents.
