Asia Institute Crane House Chinese Language Program is a tuition free summer language program focused on providing high quality Chinese language and cultural learning to rising 6th-12th grade students in the Louisville, Kentucky region. In this 3-week program students are immersed in Chinese language and culture through projects and group activities. Activities include traditional arts such as paper folding and calligraphy, traditional dances, tai chi, and music. They will also explore contemporary China through its cities, growing economy, environment and the arts. Students will use their own Kentucky heritage as a lens to compare and contrast both cultures. During the course of the program, students learn language and culture, then demonstrate their knowledge in a final program for educators, family and friends.
