Lifelong Learning Course on China

In February and March the IU School of Continuing Studies will be offering a Lifelong Learning course sponsored by EASC titled Putting Together the Puzzle: Making Sense of China’s Diverse Faces.  Taught by Brian Flaherty (Coordinator, Center for Chinese Language Pedagogy), the course will begin with an introduction to Mandarin Chinese but will then leave the classroom behind on an intellectual tour that will include a stop at a Chinese restaurant, a visit with a Chinese family, sightseeing with a Chinese frame of mind, and the exploration of Chinese philosophy through the practice of qigong and taijiquan.

The course will be offered on five consecutive Mondays, starting February 8, 2010. For more details and to register, visit http://continue.indiana.edu, or call (812) 855-9335.
