For eight years, GFS’s Mandarin instructor, Wei Chen Santarella, offered an intensive, yet fun and Chinese Language and Culture Camp in Palo Alto, California. Now that she lives in Philadelphia, Wei Chen is bringing her time-tested teaching techniques as well as her love of sharing her native language with children. In addition to practicing Mandarin conversation skills, participants not only will learn details of daily life in China, but they also will learn how to make dumplings, practice tai chi, do calligraphy, and much, much more! During the first week, the theme will be Chinese holidays and during the second week the theme will be National Treasures. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about China’s 5000-year-old culture as well as its fascinating language! Little Panda Mandarin is a morning-only camp and participants may wish to stay for Ceramics or the Explorers Day Camp during the afternoon session. Lunchtime coverage will be available.
