STEM was promoted by the US president OBAMA in 2008, and gradually became a trend which spread out the world. Take Taiwan for an example. Now our new 108 Education Curriculum is focus on STEM and teachers in Taiwan have to work with other teachers to design a STEAM lesson plan. For example, we do "Aquaponics" in Taiwan in science class, we teach some English words that related to Aquaponics in English Class, we read some articles that related to Aquaponics in Chinese Class, we do some mathematic practice that related to Aquaponics in math Class and we try to decorate the fish box in Art class and so on. Since STEM is so important, you guys must visit STEMFest and see many amazing STEM ideas.

We learned how to make an order in the Chinese Restaurant and we talked about the culture part in the dialogue that Dr.ZZ wrote. Now it's your turn to make a dialogue.

We will go over a Chinese menu and you have to work together to create a real dialogue. 

Here is the dialogue Dr. ZZ wrote

While I was reading "Framing America", an art history book of America, I found that America is a multi-culture country  that combined Latin American Indian, Spanish, German, British, and African American. Meanwhile, Taiwan is a multi-culture country as well, and we combined the indigeous people, Spanish, Netherland, Han, Japanese, and Chinese.  

 Basic information of Taiwan 

Taiwan is located in East Asia and China to the west, South Korea to the north, Japan to the north-east, and the Philippines to the south. 

Taiwan is a big and highly development ISLAND which has an area of 35,808 square kilometres (13,826 sq mi), with mountain ranges dominating the eastern two thirds and plains in the western third. Taiwan has almost 24 million inhabitants and its capital city is Taipei.

Statesboro-Bulloch County Library offered different activities, workshops, and lecture for kids and parents to work togehter to learn. In the US, teachers do care about you, and they are not only teach you knowledge but they will be your friends and coach forever. I think that was the best example of holistic educaiton. I joined one workshop that taught teacher teaching mindfulness in the classroom and i think i learn a lot from the instructor. Thanks

Number is always the first thing we learned while learning a new language. I am going to introduce some easy ways that help foreigners to acquire Chinese number from one to ten. In addition, I am going to introduce a very useful website called 小豆豆学数数 where we can learn the pronunciation, the stroke-order, tone, and play some game with it. Most students would think that Chinese is super difficult but Chinese is easy to understand as long as you realize the nature of it.

First of all, as long as you know the number from one to ten, not only you can write to 99 but also you can pronounce to 99.

Secondly, you don't have to memorize those Chinese vocabularies by remembering the letters. You can activate your right brain because each Chinese character is a symbol with meaning.

Finally, just like phonics we do offer pinyin that helps foreigners to pronounce those words.  

How to pronounce 1 - 10 in Chinese?

 Statesboro-Bulloch County Library 

how to get there ?  CAR / BIKE / WALK ONLY

Statesboro is a small town and there is no public transportation so either you have to drive a car, ride a bike, or take a walk. It's located in the city center so you still can walk by other places, like city hall, theater and so on. (There is a parking lot for readers.)
