Chinese Story Time(中文故事会)

I participated in Chinese Story Time a lot along with my daughter and it is a pretty fun thing to do. If you have a kid within age 2 to 5, I would suggest to try it with you kids. The link for description and the registration is here. (我会在课后跟我女儿参加安娜堡的中文故事会,这个是个很不错的活动。如果你有2到5岁的小孩,我会推荐你来玩。报名参加的链接在上面。)

P.s. We do encourage parents to present stories, if you are interested, you can contact me. (注:我们鼓励家长参与讲故事的环节,如果你有兴趣来讲故事,欢迎跟我联系,我们负责场地跟材料准备。)

“ICRA,正式注册名称为International Chinese Reading Association(华阅会),EIN:81-1472910, 是一个以志愿者为基础的,在美国根据Internal Revenue Code第501(c)(3)条获豁免缴税的非营利组织。

ICRA致力于推广中文故事会(Chinese story time)等活动,让小朋友们在轻松愉快的中文故事环境中学中文,用中文,并喜欢上中文!


Personal Interest

Outside of math, I am interested in reading, swimming, hiking, planting, watercolor painting (especially about plants), cooking, sewing.

I am also particularly interested in hearing interesting ko-ans in Buddhism, you can definitely email me with the reference if you see a good one, thank you.
