Chinese Language Program
In order to serve the diverse community in the Pasadena District, the Chinese Program at Pasadena City College offers classes that range from Chinese language courses and Chinese cultural courses to courses in Chinese literature. The Program helps students develop communicative skills in the Chinese language and a cosmopolitan knowledge of Chinese culture and literature. Students may also follow a course of study leading to a Chinese major.
The Chinese Zodiac consists of a 12-year cycle, each year named after a different animal that imparts distinct characteristics to its year. Many Chinese believe that the year of a person's birth is the primary factor in determining that person's personality traits, physical and mental attributes and degree of success and happiness throughout their lifetime.
