Terry Waltz – Three-Day Mandarin Dog-Gone Fast Workshop
Led by Dr. Terry Waltz, expert in Mandarin and Total Physical Response Storytelling (TPRS), these three classes immerse students in Mandarin language learning that is fun and effective. Supported by the Willson Center and the Department of Language and Literacy Education, this immersive experience is aimed at adult beginners in the study of Mandarin (no previous experience necessary but attending all three sessions is strongly encouraged). Fluent Mandarin teachers are also welcome to observe this practice and the speedy results. Classes are from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 21-23.
Surprise yourself by how much Mandarin you can learn in three days and by doing so, learn about a spirited new approach to teaching and learning world languages.
Participants who attend all three days will receive a free copy of China’s award-winning book “To Live” by Yu Hua as part of the NEA Big Read program. The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
