Atthey had two hours of study hall to review, to do homework or to read ahead. Based on the students’ individual level, the teachers assign them different homework to meet their needs and to get ready for next year’s classes. One student who already finished AP Chinese attended classes with SIAS international students, and he also worked with Peng and Jing for his own improvement in Chinese. The five students on this trip who are taking AP Chinese next year also received a special gift from Jing and Hank to help them stretch their reading ability—an AP practice package! The other students mainly focused on verbal skills.
