San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
Sino Language Gateway (SLG), a leading provider of study abroad immersion programs, is attending the San Francisco Chinese New Year Celebration, specifically participating in the Chinatown Community Street Fair on February 23rd and 24th. As part of the celebration, SLG will be greeting and interacting with event attendees at their booth in the Street Fair to spread news about cultural learning and studying abroad in China. The Chinatown Street Fair will be a festive occasion for attendees to receive a taste of the excitement of Chinese culture and also learn of opportunities for youth to receive a complete and authentic Chinese experience during the upcoming summer.
“While most are familiar with popular symbols of Chinese culture, such as the lion dance or red lantern, we want to invite people to dive deeper into authentic Chinese culture,” said Anna Yu, Marketing Director of SLG. “By providing summer cultural immersion programs to youth, SLG encourages and allows easy access for American students to discover the real China and gain a deeper understanding of the people and language.”
SLG Chinese language and culture summer programs in Beijing combine language learning, cultural activities, fun and travel into one exceptional camp experience designed to give students deep-rooted understanding of Chinese culture and society while making connections with local Chinese children. SLG has been bringing thousands of students across the U.S. and the globe to its Beijing summer camp since 2003, and has also hosted programs in the heart of Shanghai in 2013 allowing students to experience the robust metropolis in a direct, authentic and vivid way.
The goal of these cultural immersion camps is to build friendship and understanding between two vastly different cultures while equipping students with the academic and life skills to face their futures as culturally-aware adults. The SLG Leadership and Community Service camp in Beijing combines the Chinese language learning and cultural immersion with English teaching projects to give students first-hand experiences in working together as organized teams to develop teaching curriculums and execute classroom management for elementary-level Chinese students. These programs not only submerge SLG youth into Chinese cultural settings, but also help them grow to be more independent, mature and open-minded young adults.
In the midst of celebrating the lunar new year, SLG cordially invites anyone who’s interested in seizing new cultural opportunities to visit the SLG booth #116 and discover a wealth of possibility and cultural fascination for today’s children and youth.
