Project Description: Volunteers will live on campus and attend Chinese (Mandarin) language classes taught by student-teachers and attend related cultural events. No prior Chinese language experience is required. Chinese TCSL (Teaching Chinese as a Second Language) students will teach, tutor and guide volunteers.  This is a great opportunity to build relationships with Chinese young adults while learning the language and culture in China. The team will present English Corners and Cultural Studies for campus wide participation.  Our goal is to impact lives thru friendship. Some of the Chinese students may come to USA in early 2019 as part of the Edge/ ZUT Cultural Exchange, presenting an opportunity for furthering friendships and cultural understanding.
