Program: MiddLingo-Teaching Chinese Language & Culture

January 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

The One World Library Project invites everyone to simultaneous programs at the Lawrence Memorial Library.
While adults and youth are learning about Middlingo, a Chinese language and culture program, children of all ages are invited to join Candy Jiang for Chinese songs and crafts activities, a Chinese noodle bowl and other light snacks. Jiang, a native of Guangzhou in southern China, now lives in Bristol.

As parents knows, young people absorb language easily. Joanna Doria and May Poduschnick grew up speaking Chinese and English, and in turn have raised multilingual children here in Addison County. Middlingo has grown out of their language skills and successes, providing Chinese language camps and after-school programs in Middlebury and Bristol. Through Middlingo, 3 to 12 year olds discover the language and the culture from one of the oldest civilizations in the world.
