ACLS Beijing Summer Camp 2010
In early summer of 2010, ACLS successfully hosted the first summer camp in the campus of Beijing Language and Culture University. As a supplementary program to the Chinese language programs offered by ACLS, the Beijing summer camp was initiated to add live experience for the students of the Chinese language classes, give them the opportunity to climb to the Great Wall, to visit the Forbidden City, to learn Chinese language and culture in the very place where Chinese is spoken. Students with interesting in Chinese language from the AB Regional High School also joined the summer camp.
In the early of June, Miaomiao Wang, Chinese language teacher of ACLS and Harvard University, arrived Beijing to do massive preparations for summer camp. On June 25, Jianguo Wang, the Principal of ACLS, and the 10 campers, who are ACLS higher graders and non-Chinese students from ABRHS, left Boston for Beijing summer camp at Beijing Language and Culture University. The campers are Albert Kong, Andy Shen, Alex Dai, Daniel Bi, Clara Wang, Janice Lin, Thomas Meagher, Edward Livshits, Rebecca Meaghe, Chris Hart. Successively, Rixin Li, Chinese language teacher of ABRHS went to camp and joined as camp instructor.
The summer camp programs were designed by Miaomiao Wang, Rixin Li, Jianying Shi, Jianguo Wang and Xuan Kong. The camp is good for the students who are from both Chinese and non-Chinese family. The Chinese language program was instructed by the senior teachers from Beijing Language and Culture University, and the Chinese culture classes are taught by the teachers from the Art Department of BLCU, the China Central Academy Of Fine Arts and Beijing Sports University. The students learned Chinese by living with Chinese-speaking friends, practicing with vocabulary from local people and experiencing the daily life. They also learned martial arts, Chinese calligraphy, Chinese painting, water color, Chinese instruments, Styles of makeup and Chinese cuisine; they practiced bargaining at the shopping centers and ticket-selling in buses, made friends with students from associated high school of China University of Geosciences, visited the families of their Beijing local high school students, and volunteered at the migrant laborer resident and the poor in Beijing.
The students also visited the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall, Beijing National Stadium, the National Swimming Center, the National Museum, the National Center for the Performing Arts, Karaoke halls, famous restaurants and a 3-day tour to Xi’an. Each student gets a certificate from the Beijing Language and Culture University at the closing ceremony.
The campers were back to home safely accompanied by teacher Rixin Li on July 13.
