Learning Chinese through Art
- July 8, 2019 – July 26, 2019: (Face-to-face)
- STARTALK Colby, Waterville, ME
This program will offer a three-week long beginning-level, nonresidential Chinese summer camp in July 2019 to 3rd to 5th graders (ages 10-12) in the Central Maine community. From 9:00AM to 3:00PM each day, student participants will learn basic Chinese through an art-based, culture-rich experience. Through a 90-hours long immersion experience in Chinese language and art otherwise unavailable to them, they will gain an initial understanding of the Chinese language, art, and culture; they will learn to use basic Chinese to communicate both personal information and traditional stories from Chinese culture.
