Welcome to Pomona College!

Hello MMLA students and parents!

Welcome to the 2014 Beijing Academy

Dear Beijing Academy Students, 

Our names are Tim Liu and Yuan Gao, and we will be serving as Director of Residential Life and Program Director, respectively, for the Beijing Academy this summer. We are writing today to catch you up on all we have been doing to prepare for what promises to be an amazing language immersion experience. We would also like to take this time to give you an update on what you can expect to experience during this summer’s program.

It’s Almost Showtime!

Greetings from the Academy office staff here at Swarthmore College! All of us here couldn’t be more excited for the beginning of the camp in less than a week and are currently in the midst of making sure everything is prepared for your arrival. We hope you are very excited for an awesome adventure!

Preparing for My Trip to Comillas, Spain

I spent today beginning to prepare for my trip to Comillas, Spain. It is hard to believe that I’m leaving once again in less than a month, as it feels like just yesterday that I came home from MMLA Pomona.

I’m doubly excited for the trip to Spain as it will not only be the continuation of my MMLA learning experience but the first time I ever leave the country. As with many exciting things, there were some not-quite-as-exciting things that I had to do in order to prepare.

MMLA Will Fast-Track You To Achieving Your Goals

When I signed up for MMLA I had no idea how I was going to use Chinese in my future, or even if I was going to continue it into university. I only knew that I had the eventual objective of fluency and that I wanted to improve as much as I could. Aside from exceeding my expectations for improving my language skills, my experience at MMLA made a huge difference in how I look at learning Chinese in the future.

Classroom Experiences Deserving of the Bright and Eager Students Who Learn Within Them

As the MMLA summer program is a challenging educational environment in which students are expected to learn massive quantities of information, a fair amount time is naturally spent in the classroom. However, teachers try to create engaging classroom experiences deserving of the bright and eager students who learn within them. While the immersion environment ensures that learning happens wherever you go, different skills develop in different places.
