Disneynature Born in China -- Youth Mandarin Guide

On April 4, 2017, students from 6 LAUSD Mandarin Immersion programs -- Broadway Elementary, Castelar Elementary, El Sereno Middle School, Mark Twain Middle School, Lincoln High School, and Woodrow Wilson High School -- attended a special Mandarin-language screening of Disneynature's Born in China at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. To help students prepare for the screening, Broadway Elementary Mandarin language teacher Jiabei Li, along with Shanghai Jiao Tong University professor Qianfei Pan and the staff of the UCLA Confucius Institute, created a guide to the vocabulary and Chinese cultural elements in the film. We have made this comprehensive language and culture guide available in both Mandarin and English for language teachers and students to use for their own language learning benefit.
