Mandarin Field Trip to the Fells
Students in Konwen Yuen's Mandarin 4-5 class went on a field trip to the Fells today, as part of a translation project. Students had worked on a community outreach project for which they translated hiking guides ("The Middlesex Fells by T") from English to Mandarin Chinese for the Friends of the Fells organization. Today's trip enabled them to experience the trails that they had worked on for the translation. More importantly, students were able to practice the vocabulary learned in the classroom, speaking only Mandarin during the expedition!
