In May, CIAU faculty Jeff Yin taught the vocabulary for certain household items in Chinese. Students also learned Peking Opera facial makeup and watched a video of a face-changing performance. In June, Jeff taught students to design and make a small Chinese book to help them review specific knowledge points. At the end of the semester, they were given a final examination.
From July to August Jeff Yin met teachers from North Street Elementary School in Geneva to work out a schedule for the Chinese curriculum for the next academic year.
