Chinese Language & Culture 

Why do Chinese people dine in family style? How did the distinctive style of Ming vase form over time? How could ancient China sustain a relatively stable and consistent two-thousand year civilization? If you would like to get to know this ancient yet young country from a fresh perspective, and pick up some Chinese language skills along the way, join our “Chinese Culture and Language” course! It will be a weekly two-hour adventure like no other.
