More than 150 attendees visited the Landmark booth at the Dragon Boat Festival in Peachtree City. These guests learned about Landmark, our Mandarin program, and acquired Chinese names. Landmark Mandarin student-volunteers wrote Chinese names for them.
Landmark currently offers Mandarin from middle school introduction to post AP Mandarin classes and has achieved a 100% passing rate on the AP Chinese exam (earned a score of 3 or higher) since offering AP Chinese two years ago. Landmark Mandarin teacher, Mrs. Xinfang Chen says, "I am very proud of our AP Mandarin students because they are 4th-year second language learners while at most other schools the AP class is only offered to 5th-year foreign language students. AP Chinese is designed to be comparable/equivalent to fourth-semester college/university courses in Mandarin Chinese."
The Landmark Mandarin program offers a Chinese Club and National Chinese Honors Society. These are great opportunities for students to learn from each other and build leadership. We celebrate Chinese holidays every year with a variety of fun activities. Mrs. Xinfang Chen is a certified P-12 Mandarin teacher in GA. She has been teaching for 25 years in public schools and private schools. Mandarin is the top language worldwide for business other than English, according to Bloomberg Rankings.
