Online Educational Talks - https://www.capa-hc.org/weekly-talk
Chinese American Parent Association of Howard County (CAPA-HC) is holding online educational talks for school age children since April 9.
Topic: Language Learning Abroad to Expand Your Horizon
Time: May 14, 2021 8:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Speaker: Sonia Su and Theo Goetemann
Learning a language is a great way to expand your horizons. But it's one thing to learn a language in class -- and a completely different animal to learn abroad. This talk focuses on foreign language programs and how to get the most (linguistically) out of your time in another country.
