Many students learn by doing, and with Setting the Stage for Chinese, students of all ages will be singing, shouting and laughing as they learn Chinese. By combining language learning with theater performance, this innovative series of bilingual plays introduces students to Chinese language and culture as they read each story, memorize their roles and perform on stage. Designed for intermediate to advanced students of Chinese, Level 2 of this series includes adaptations of China's fairy tales and favorite holiday stories such as "Lantern Festival," "Five Brothers" and "Cowherd and Weaver Girl." Contemporary dialogues, rhymes and songs are woven into the scripts, making the language come alive for the stage. Both performers and their parents in the audience will remember these plays for years to come.
