For two summers now, I've collaborated with the director of a Newton Chinese school and experienced Chinese teachers to offer a Chinese summer school. We plan to have it the last two weeks of this summer, so 8/20-8/31.
The summer school provides kids exposure to Chinese language and culture in a fun, engaging way. Activities include Chinese song, storytelling, conversations, games, yo-yo, robotics. Kids usually have a lot of fun and pick up some Chinese along the way. If your kids already speak some Chinese, great; if not, no worries.
The students are mostly from MLK School but also other Cambridge schools or even outside Cambridge. Students should be aged 5.5 (rising K)-10.
Please let us know if you're interested in the summer school, and how many kids, by RSVPing here. We'll start registration later in the spring and let you know when that's up.
For more information, please see sample registration page from last year.
