UD NSLIY Program Features “Buddy Activity” on A Daily Basis

One of the important features of the UD NSLIY is “Buddy Activity,” during which our students meet with Chinese students from local high schools twice a week to chat about differences and similarities between American and Chinese schools, their dreams and learn Chinese dances, songs, paintings, etc. On July 28, “buddies” met again to discuss Peking Opera and learned to paint Peking Opera masks and make puppet figures for “shadow play,” a traditional theatrical form popular in southern Fujian province. They truly had a lot of fun!
