    Summary

    Aimed at raising the awareness of and stimulating interest in learning Chinese language and culture, our program will recruit 24 students from 9th-12th grades. We will offer 2 classes in total to provide 140 hours of student-centred learning and instruction in Chinese to novice low and mid learners. Each day four hours or less of classroom instruction will be provided. In the mornings and evenings and lunch time students will participate in culture and language enrichment activities in small groups led by an instructor for six hours. 1:2 format which was added about three years is our highlight. Our survey shows that students liked interaction with an instructor in a small group intensely.
