In May and June, Emma and Katie Wang continued Chinese enrichment classes with the sixth graders at Gillette and Roxboro Middle Schools. Their presentations introduced some interesting aspects of Chinese culture, such as pandas, Kung Fu, Chinese paper cutting, the animals of the Chinese zodiac, Chinese knots, and traditional Chinese musical instruments. The students learned basic words and expressions to talk about Chinese currency, time, dates and days, fruit, and school subjects. Classes concluded on June 21st.
The young learners were fascinated with the Chinese culture and language. They hoped to learn more about ancient and modern China, such as Chinese folk tales, historical heroes, traditional Chinese architecture, typical animals in China, and sports in China.
