Chinese Language Immersion Sports Camp

From Heidi Chang | 13:37

The Confucius Institute in Hawaii is attracting teachers and students nationwide to participate in a unique summer camp. It's the only camp that teaches Chinese through daily activities, including sports like ping pong and martial arts.

Ping_pong_instructors_small Interest in learning Chinese has been increasing in the United States, as China continues to rise as a global power. So why not make learning a language fun?  The Confucius Institute at the University of Hawaii has developed the country's first Chinese Language Immersion Sports Camp to help meet the demand for Chinese language programs.  The camp also trains teachers and teaches Mandarin in innovative ways.

Good piece to air during the summer or anytime.  Now in its third year, the three week-long camp takes place in July.
