The two weeks Immersion Camp cohosted with Omeida Chinese Academy Yangshuo, China from July 15 to July 29, 2018 was a big success.
Three families, seven students joined this two weeks’ immersion program. The day began with customized Chinese lessons in the morning, and various cultural activities in the afternoon, such as Chinese calligraphy and stone painting, grocery shopping in the local market, making dumplings, paper cutting, pottery, opera mask making, tea plantation visiting, Tai Chi practice, Chinese cooking, etc. During their break time, students also had fun playing street ping-pong, tug-of-war, BBQ, watching stage performance and interacting with local students. On weekends, students explored the beautiful local scenic spots.
Cultural immersion is a great way to learn a language and more trips will be organized in the coming years!
