On Wednesday, January 11, 2012, at 7pm Chinese Language Teacher Wang Xiaona will speak about teenage life and culture in China at the Hopkinton Public Library. Included in her presentation will be descriptions of what school is like in China, as well as the life of parents and teachers.

Wang Xiaona comes to Hopkinton through the Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP), a program which brings teachers from China and Egypt to teach Chinese and Arabic at elementary and secondary schools in the United States for an academic year.

“American students benefit from having native Chinese speakers in the classroom,” said Wang Xiaona, “and from a broadened foreign language curriculum.”

For the current year, 15 Chinese teachers were selected and are assigned to different schools in states across the country. Xiaona Wang comes to Hopkinton from Dalian, a coastal city in China, and teaches Chinese level one and Chinese level two at Hopkinton High.

To learn more about life in China, attend her presentation at the library next week.
