RCDS Pilots New Language Exchange Program

Students in Chinese 4 participated in a virtual exchange with students at the Loomis Chaffee School via Zoom. Conversing in Mandarin, the RCDS and Loomis students shared information about their schools and the courses they offer. They also learned about each other—s​​ome found out they enjoy the same music or sports, and some learned they share the same heritage. 
This exchange was a pilot run of a WE-Talk program, which is bringing together a select group of high schools and colleges from across the country to collaborate and connect students, by proficiency levels, via Zoom. The program’s purpose is to apply languages to strengthen interpersonal speaking skills in real-life contexts. RCDS hopes to provide this opportunity to upper-level language students once a month, and is considering expanding the program to students with other proficiency levels in the future.
