What we teach:

In the advanced level and heritage Chinese, we focus on developing conversational, presentation, story reading and story/essay writing skills. 
The art section includes Chinese calligraphy, water coloring, paper cutting, origami, and Chinese traditional music. The arts lessons are taught in the fully immersive Chinese language environment. Students will be able to finish several decent works of Chinese arts by the end of each camp.
The cooking section will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch time. Students will learn how to cook two traditional Chinese dishes each week.
