Sounds of China: STARTALK - Learn Chinese Through Beijing Opera Performance

Chinese
  • July 27, 2015August 14, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY

This unique summer camp integrates Mandarin Chinese language learning with the theme of Beijing Opera, a spectacular and distinctive style of Chinese performing art. Language classes, cultural classes, and crafts workshops will be scheduled in the morning, while Beijing Opera classes will be scheduled in the afternoon. Students will face real-world Chinese language situations and will have the chance to solve unpredictable challenges by using the Chinese language learned on the same day. A goal of this camp is to allow students to communicate with Chinese people of different ages, backgrounds, professions and personal experiences, including some Chinese, young and old, from the local Chinese community. In the end of this program, they will have the language skills to carry out various tasks, from basic survival tasks to expressing opinions. They will also have an understanding of Beijing Opera, including its singing style, the symbolic meaning of its specialized body language, the traditional face painting, the costumes, its social context, its history and its future. Meanwhile, students will be able to think about, describe, and discuss these aspects of Beijing Opera in Chinese language (at each student’s proficiency level).
