On Jun. 27, the 12-day summer camp for Tennessee middle school students, which was organized by the Confucius Institute at University of Tennessee for the first time, finished successfully. Beside a leading teacher from the Confucius Institute, all the camp members were American middle school students. This activity apparently arouses their interest in Chinese language and deepens their understanding of China, Jiangsu and Nanjing.
In the guide Confucius Institute Headquarters/Hanban and based on the specific condition of the camp members, our college elaborately arranged a series of lecture, salon, Chinese language culture courses, and outdoor experience activities, including the lecture of introduction of SEU and the history and economy of Jiangsu and Nanjing, the social science salon titled “Education for Overseas Students in China and International Communication of Chinese Culture”, etc.
The camp members said that they benefited a lot from this summer camp, not only about the knowledge of Chinese language and culture, but also their horizon of life.
