Session 2 (July 5 - 23): Chinese Holidays 中國傳統節日

We will be exploring the exciting and colorful traditions of major Chinese holidays. Our day starts out with a Chinese class in speaking, reading, and writing. Throughout the day, students will participate in a variety of language and cultural activities.  We will craft items integral to each holiday tradition (lanterns, dragon boats, paper cut art), play traditional Chinese games, recite Chinese poetry, and make trademark holiday dishes.

In the afternoon, students will take drawing and Chinese tumbling classes from our Visual Arts and Dance department faculty. All teachers will speak in Chinese for a fully immersive experience.

Students will receive a placement test on the first day and assigned to one of two groups based on language experience.
