Intermediate Chinese


Students in Nasher Museum
Students from Chinese 203 discuss art in Chinese at the Nasher Museum of Art.

VIDEO: Professor Liu and Bonnie Wang from Durham Academy discuss the reciprocal learning (and fun!) that results from their partnership. They have partnered together on community-based activities for the past 3 years. 

"Bonnie's students really helped bring motivation to my students. Because they see these younger students who are learning Chinese and are really good at it and think 'I need to work harder.' And doing community-based activities together like visiting the Nasher and talking about the arts and communicating with each other in Chinese really helped our students to learn," says Professor Liu.
This course is part of the Community-Based Language Initiative. This initiative connects Duke language students to communities that have educational assets and resources that complement learning outcomes. Students engage in many types of interactions with the community members and critically reflect on their experiences.
