Chinese, Russian
  • June 29, 2015July 23, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • • • Christopher Farms Elementary School, Virginia Beach, VA

This is a long-standing free four-week immersive program which offers four classes of elementary Chinese for rising fifth grade students and one class of advanced Chinese for returning rising sixth grade students. This is the first year that there will be two classes of elementary Russian offered to rising fifth grade students as well. For the elementary classes, students are selected by lottery equally from each of the three sections of the city (60 for Chinese and 30 for Russian). Participants attend class four hours Monday-Thursday, with enrichment instruction in the arts (folkloric dance/martial arts and painting/calligraphy). In addition, students will enjoy an afternoon field trip to further explore the respective language and culture studied. In February of the following year, participants will be invited to after-school post-sessions to continue their studies. The Chinese post-sessions focus on celebration of the Chinese New Year and culminate in a field trip to a heritage community Spring Festival. The Russian post-sessions bring students to a local high school to enjoy Russian food, dance, and crafts with the high school Russian students.
