Culture always plays a very important part in language learning. Every language is full of unique and interesting cultural factors. Chinese is the same. That is why helping kids get to understand Chinese culture will make their Chinese learning easier and more interesting.
During Chinese New Year time, we have different celebration activities in ES Chinese classes: Chinese New Year red banner writing, dumpling making and lantern making. These activities will help students get a deeper understanding of Chinese New Year culture. The language components are also within the activities, so that kids practice Chinese authentically. We believe these cultural activities will help students on both language and culture learning.
