The SPIRAL team recently organized an online international exchange between New London High School (NLHS) in Connecticut and Yinghai High School (YHS) in Taiwan. There were about 10 students from NLHS and 25 students from YHS who participated in the online event.
The students and teachers from both schools got to know each other by introducing themselves and their schools. The New London students spoke some Chinese that they have learned from their Chinese teachers in SPIRAL’s Learn Chinese and Travel to China course this year. The Taiwanese students presented a talent Show and danced to music and sang several songs in English.
The students and teachers from both schools expressed excitement about continuing the online exchange. Hopefully, in the future, they can visit each other in person.
