Journey to China: Cities & Festivals

Posted by john on

Join us as we explore China to learn about the culture, foods and geography of this dynamic country. These classes are delivered live in a safe online environment by native-speaking teachers who make Chinese interactive and engaging for children. Through theme-based activities, children will learn about Chinese language and culture as the teachers guide them through the world’s most illustrious cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Xi’an, both in ancient times and modern. They will also virtually experience how people celebrate traditional festivals in China such as Chinese New Year, Dragon Boat Festival and so on. Each weekly session will look at a different city and festival for 10 weeks.

If you plan to participate from home, please email youthservices@zblibrary.org and a Zoom link will be sent to your email.
