Events include: China Seminar Series, Social Gatherings with Chinese locals, Chinese Game Nights, Chinese Movie Nights, Student Social Dinners, and more!
We arrange many electives and student activities that are both fun and help students learn more about Chinese Language and Culture.
CLE arranges local trips and events for students. All trips focus on Chinese Cultural sites and activities, including: The Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Llama Temple, Temple of Heaven, Beijing Opera, and Chinese Acrobatics.
CLE provides students the opportunity to be assigned a Chinese friend as a studying partner. Students and Language Partners partake in many social activities, allowing students to not only practice Chinese with native speakers, but also develop cultural understanding and long-term friendships.
To help students take advantage of the native Chinese environment, CLE works with Language Teachers to frequently arrange fun, interesting and practical Real-life Language tasks. The goal is to stretch students Mandarin knowledge in real-life situations.
