Team Leader: Barbara Pound

Project Task: Volunteers will live on campus and attend Chinese (Mandarin) language classes taught by student-teachers along with related cultural events. The team will present English Corners and Cultural Studies for campus-wide participation. This is a great opportunity to build relationships with Chinese students while learning the language and culture of China. Our goal is to impact lives through friendship. Some of the Chinese students may come to the USA in early 2020 as part of the Edge Institute/ZUT Cultural Exchange program, giving an opportunity for furthering friendships and cultural understanding.

Volunteer Qualifications: No prior Chinese language experience is required. Chinese TCSL students will teach, tutor, and guide volunteers.

Estimated Cost: $600 plus airfare
