A dozen kids gathered onto the carpet of the Shannon Lounge and sat in a circle. One by one, in a counterclockwise pattern, they counted in Chinese, “yī, èr, sān, sì, wǔ, liù…,” until they reached the number 30. By the end of the week, they’d be counting even higher.
“The fact that this class is offered on the C of I campus really enhances our culture,” said C of I English professor Dr. Rochelle Johnson, whose daughter Wren attended the class.
“I counted to 100 today,” Wren said after the last day of class.
