For language learning, the younger, the better. To better prepare Tucson children and youth to learn Chinese language, the Confucius Institute at the University of Arizona and the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center will offer Tucson's first Chinese language and culture summer day camp in 2013 for K-12 students through the Arizona Youth University at the UA Outreach College. Students will experience an enriched curriculum of Chinese language, plus special instruction in Chinese martial arts, Chinese music, cooking and cuisine, games and crafts, singing and dancing, calligraphy and more. The exceptional instruction team includes professors, experienced teachers, professional musicians, artists and a master of Chinese martial arts. Camp supplies, lunch and a snack will be provided.
This program employs an age-appropriate curriculum and takes into account students' Chinese language competence at the time of enrollment. Students will acquire Chinese language skills in a fun and interactive environment. A virtual tour of China will be the theme for the camp to provide students a memorable experience of China's rich cultural heritage and breathtaking scenery. Students will perform songs, dances, skits and martial arts, and display their art and language works at a closing ceremony at the end of the two-week camp.
