Learn Chinese in China

What "language" can mean here?

Recommended Posts


Some quotation: "It was going to be a dead-on boring semester. We were going to

study language, math, English, politics, finance and accounting (a new class), plus

study hall, class meetings, secretarial kills, flower arranging (a new class), computers,

Chinese, gym, calligraphy, and our daily technical class. No history no

geography no philosophy no music no biology no chemistry."

My question is - what could the pupil mean here by "language" if she names

"Chinese" as well a little bit further?

Is "flower arranging" a common subject in Chinese curriculum? It makes me think Japan, in which case language could be Japanese. Just a wild guess based on stereotypes and misconceptions I'm only partially aware of.
