North East Carolina Prep School (NECP)’s China connection is teaching students real-world lessons that surpass language and cultural boundaries.
“The current exchange program between NECP and our partner schools in China is giving our students many opportunities to broaden their horizons as they learn about another culture and form friendships with young people from the other side of the globe,” said NECP Executive Director John D. Westberg. “These opportunities will expand as our plans develop to include more exchange students, visiting teachers who will teach the Chinese language, and NECP students and staff visits to China.”
NECP’s “China connection” continued last week, as six students from Hai Nan, China, visited the school’s classrooms. The visit was part of the school’s partnership with the Global Classroom Alliance (GCA). NECP students served as ambassadors for the Chinese students.
Ninth-grader Aaron Smith, guide for Wu Kun Fa, said he learned about Fa’s interests despite the language barrier between the two.
Ninth-grader Madison Anderson was an ambassador to Lucy Chen Yongjia. The two discussed the things they learned about the other’s culture.
