Native Language @ ISB

A Language-Rich Lunar New Year

January 24, 2020 · 1 Comment

Spring couplets, paper cutting for window decorations, stick games, FOOD…these are just a few ways ISB’s Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese speakers are celebrating Lunar New Year, January 25, 2020.

Lunar New Year also provides opportunities for conversation. When does our family celebrate New Year, and why? When do our friends celebrate? What are the historic roots of our traditions? How have different generations observed this same holiday?

No matter your background, may your family enjoy a Lunar New Year rich in both fun and language!

Reminder: Native Language Academy classes will all be back in session next week! (The couplet writing and decor-making will be happening in the ES Mandarin classes of Chinchin Fan, and stick games will be happening in ES Korean class with Young Ae Jung!)
