Theme-Based Design for Cultural Understanding
The program is for children interested in a more in-depth exploration of Chinese culture in tandem with Chinese language-learning. Fly NeuLingo is a theme-based curriculum that piques students’ curiosity about Chinese history and traditions by connecting content with areas of cultural interest.
By explaining the origin of festivals, foods, activities, scenic and historic sites, as well as presenting cultural heritage as it relates to key cities, idioms, and legends, the Fly NeuLingo curriculum helps students develop a comprehensive, multi-faceted understanding of China and its people.
