New Chinese Language and Culture program begins June 26
POSTED: 05/30/2012
This Introduction to Chinese Language and Culture class will give participants an opportunity to learn proper pronunciation, character recognition, and how to write and speak simple words and phrases in Mandarin Chinese. Aspects of Chinese society and culture, including traditional festivals and customs, food and drink, medicine and health, and arts and poems, will be covered. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under hobbies and special interests. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “language.”

Introduction to Chinese Language and Culture will take place at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday beginning on June 26 at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty, Overland Park. The cost for six 90-minute sessions is $59 per person for Johnson County residents or $65 per person for nonresidents. Advance registration is required.

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.

The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at
