A Visit to the Purple Bamboo Park, Interacting with Locals, and Exploring New Culture Classes

Julia E:

This morning, students had the opportunity to explore the Purple Bamboo Park nearby the university where they connected with the locals: asking the locals what activities they enjoyed doing at the park in the morning. Excited by these opportunities to explore the Chinese culture, many students decided to join the various activities that were held at the Purple Bamboo Park such as boat riding.

The Grand Finale

Nostalgia was in the air today—for everyone.

Today marked the official end of the program for both the Chinese and French Academies. This monumental conclusion was capped off with an evening event: the graduation ceremony.

All of the staff and the students came together—in the theater room—to celebrate the students’ accomplishment of living immersed in Chinese and French for four entire weeks. It was a celebration packed high with emotions and sentiment.

School's out!

Alas, the day has come: the last day of school!

Today marks the final day of classes for both classes—and, more notably, the last full day of the Language Pledge®! Tomorrow, in the evening, the students will be authorized, once and for all, to speak English—without any consequences!

For the Chinese Academy, classes were as you would expect them to be on the last day: fun, entertaining and easy. While most classes took the day to relax, there were a few classes still covering curriculum. However, the lessons weren’t dense, in any form.

STAMP DAY

The storm has come: testing began today!

For the Chinese Academy, today was their test day, in which all students took the STAMP Assessment. In various tech labs across the campus, the students were set up on computers to take the assessment—and, thankfully, everyone completed it, successfully!

The French Academy, on the other hand, has its testing tomorrow morning. So, the students had one final “regular” day, in which the routine set of classes were completed, along with the afternoon activities with REs.

The Final Days

A cultivation of language and communication skills has been in the process for over three weeks. And now, the final days of the program are upon the students—all of whom have dedicated themselves intellectually, day in and day out.

Due to the approaching conclusion, teachers have been slowing the classes down, allowing students to taper their minds in the days before their final exam, which is otherwise known as the “STAMP Assessment.”

The Red Shirt Takeover

Today, there was a red shirt takeover down in Middlebury, Vermont!

The Chinese Academy—in one large exodus—swarmed into the small town of Middlebury, where they had the chance to check out the school and get a taste for the local culture of the small town.
