Students Visit China and Taiwan Over Winter Break
Urban says 路順風 (bon voyage!) to 14 Urban students and their chaperones/teachers Mia and Arnaud as they leave for China and Taiwan as part of the Birth of Modern China: Culture, History, Memory immersive study program December 17-January 3.
In partnership with program host Where There Be Dragons, the students participate in homestays and a collaborative service project, and will learn first-hand about the many manifestations of Chinese identity on both sides of the Taiwan strait. Using their Mandarin language skills, the group will visit and interact with local citizens in diverse communities, from mega-cities to farming villages.
The biannual trip to China is one of four language, service and cultural exchange trips that Urban students can participate in during their time attending Urban School. The other trips include France, Spain and India.
