你好 from the Chinese Academy!
Location: Saint Michael’s College
What the Chinese Academy did today: During a hearty breakfast of eggs, hashbrowns, and pancakes students got to know each other and practiced their Chinese skills! Then, they set out for STAMP Testing -- the exam that determines their academic placement within the academy. After a short break, students attended orientation sessions to learn about major rules and expectations, as well as tips for maximizing their learning here at MIL.
Tonight, the kids will take the Language Pledge® and commit to total immersion in Chinese for the next four weeks. Many have already started to speak in-language to each other and to staff members! We are so excited to be a part of their learning and growth over the next month. Check out our Instagram Stories tonight for clips of the Language Pledge® ceremony!
