Next year’s crop of Mandarin teachers arrives from China this week. As part of their orientation, the University of Utah’s Confucius Institute takes them on a tour of Salt Lake – our tourist attractions and cultural sites.
Last year, parents helped out by having two to three teachers over for Sunday dinner.
It was a big hit because it gave teachers a chance to experience our culture – talk to the kids and learn about their hobbies and interests, enjoy some home-cooked food and ask questions about our world.
If you’re interested in volunteering this year – 5 p.m. Sunday Aug 3 – reply to Eric Chipman ASAP.
