Back from China with lots of new Chinese DVDs for children

It was a long trip, but well worth it. I got to spend time with my students and, of course, browse for new Mandarin Chinese DVDs for children here!

What's new? Lots more Thomas the Tank Engine, another several Spongebob shows, plus Hello Kitty is back in stock!

Now I have to get some clips to share with everyone.

If anyone has requests for my next teaching trip, just send a note and I'll see what I can find!

Mandarin Chinese Language Camps for the Summer

A parent asked us for a recommendation, so we wanted to share a few with you here. If anyone has additional information, please send it in via comment form!

Sidwell Friends Summer Camp

Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (they have a Mandarin component available)

UCLA and the Confucius Institute (high schoolers only)

Crossroads School in LA is always fun, but they have no Chinese program in the summer.
