Language Pledge in Beijing

It was a big day for us all in Beijing. After a night’s rest, students were all ready to go for their first day at the MMLA Beijing Academy. They started off with some testing and a taste of classes in the morning. We could tell everyone was having a good time, because we could hear students laughing all the way from our office!

Sunny, 75, and Activities Galore!

So many activities…so little time! That seems to be the motto here at MMLA Pomona. Yesterday many of our students chose to gather on Marston Quad to enjoy yet another day of beautiful weather here in sunny Claremont, California.

Arabic Academy students spent their allotted activity time learning and playing new card games. Coordinated by RA Marji, this activity allowed students to focus on their Arabic verbal communication skills (and spend some time getting some fresh air and soaking up Vitamin D outside). 

Welcome to Beijing!

We are happy to announce that all students attending the 2014 MMLA Beijing Academy have arrived safely! Luckily, there were no real flight issues and even traffic from the airport back to campus was on our side - not very common here in Beijing.

Let It Begin: The Language Pledge Ceremony

It has begun: yesterday evening, all our students proudly (and bravely) signed the Language Pledge, stating that they will communicate solely in their target language!

Welcome to Pomona College!

Hello MMLA students and parents!

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!

Real-life Language Learning at MMLA

Before I went to MMLA, I had only used Mandarin with my tutor during classes. Every once in a while I met a person who spoke Mandarin and had a short conversation with them, but I rarely had the opportunity to use a wide range of vocabulary in real-life settings.
