University of Hawai‘i Chinese Language Camp

2017 Language Camp Details

Twenty-Five students age 14-17 with no or minimum experience (no more than one year) in Chinese language studies will be selected to participate in a three-week non-residential program on the UH Manoa campus to acquire basic listening, speaking, reading, writing, and culture skills in Mandarin Chinese.

Participants learn language along with sports such as martial arts, and engage in a variety of activities focusing on Chinese culture. Language lessons consist of learner-centered, interactive, task-based activities designed to encourage learners to communicate in Chinese, and to link classroom practice with real-world usage of Chinese.
