What makes the languages of East Asia distinct and yet so similar? Explore language as it relates to Asia by learning about language families, the evolution of writing and script, loan words, and English as a world language. Tap into non-verbal language/communication through performing arts and gesture. The program will feature presentations by visiting scholars, students, and community members, with hands-on calligraphy, movement and practice, word play, and more. Bring cultural engagement to your classroom through lesson plans, resources, and hands-on activities.
