Everyday language ‘booster’ and Kite Making Workshop: A chance to learn some new words and phrases relevant to the day’s activities. Plus design and make your own kite. Kite-flying is a very popular past-time for Chinese people, and a good opportunity to practise expressing design vocabulary in Chinese.
Visit Century Park and Kite-flying: Now that you’ve completed making your own kite, it’s time to try it out! Century park is situated in the more modern (and more windy) part of the city, east of the Huangpu river, and is a popular place for locals to show off their kite and flying skills. This activity is followed by the picnic in the park.
Martial Arts Workshop: China is famous for it’s long history of martial arts study and practise. Students will be able to try their hand at Kung Fu with a local Kung Fu master to coach them. Martial Arts are best practised outside, so this workshop will take place in the park, weather permitting.
Visit Lujiazui and the top of a skyscraper: Pudong (the eastern part of the city) is famous for it’s modern skyline and huge skyscrapers. Students will have a chance to visit one of these new iconic buildings and travel all the way to the top. From there they will get great views of the city and a real sense of the scale of the Shanghai megalopolis.
