Three CEC Students Publish Work in Chinese-language Newspaper
The newspaper includes articles from students from around the world who are learning Chinese
February 14, 2012
Three students in Rubing Hsu’s Chinese language class at the APS Career Enrichment Center recently had articles published in World Journal, a Chinese-language newspaper published in New York City.
The three students had their stories published in the Jan. 31, 2012, edition of the newspaper.
Kayla Gallagher, a sophomore at La Cueva High, said her article focused on her daily routine including after-school activities. “It is my first year taking Chinese at the CEC, but I had participated in a Chinese-language immersion program in California before,” Gallagher said.
Annika Oyler, a sophomore at Eldorado High, said her article also included a self-introduction, including her hobbies and what she wants to do when she finishes school. “I wrote about how I look up to Katie Shanahan, who is a storybook artist from Canada. And, about how I want to do something related to animation or storyboards as a career,” Oyler said.
Joshua Hone of the Early College Academy was the third student who had his article published. It also included a personal profile and information about what he wants to do as a career.
Instructor Hsu said that the newspaper includes articles from students from around the world who are learning Chinese. “Before we started submitting articles, most came from either the East Coast or the West Coast. I think it is good because it gives the students experience in writing in Chinese and gives some publicity to the program here at the CEC,” Hsu said.
