Perform Qingdao

Through the frameworks of localization and Performed Culture, Perform Qingdao is designed to train Chinese as a foreign language (CFL) learners practicing settling in, engaging with and establishing in a Chinese speaking community. The entire learning process is contextualized with the language-culture complex of the city of Qingdao, a local that presents an interesting combination the traditional and the modern as well as small enough for non-native learners to have easier interactions with the locals and large enough to have a great variety of social and cultural activities crucial for advancement of the leaners’ language levels. Combining language item learning with communication strategy acquisition, Perform Qingdao aims to enable CFL learners making the transition from learning Chinese to learning to do things in Chinese and from mastering the content to becoming an autonomies learner. By becoming an expert in doing things in Qingdao, learners develop transferrable knowledge and skills that can be applied to new situations in the future and in other Chinese speaking communities.
