Five current Calvin students are offering a panel discussion to share their teaching experiences as well as their overall impressions of China.
This past summer five Calvin students and one Calvin graduate with a Master's in Chinese spent six weeks teaching English in China to groups of young Chinese children, ranging in age from kindergarten to ninth grade. They were placed in teams of two in Christian schools in Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Guangzhou. The five current Calvin students are offering a panel discussion to share their teaching experiences as well as their overall impressions of China. The presentation is co-sponsored by the Hubers Asian Studies Program and the Education Department of Calvin College. Free refreshments will be served.
