March 13, 2023: Students in the CEC Chinese language program participated in cultural exchange activities with students from Hualien City in Taiwan. At 7 pm New Mexico time, 15 CEC students met virtually with 20 Hualien Senior High students in their morning class at 9 am Taiwan time. Students in the two cities used Google Jamboard to introduce Albuquerque and Hualien, then all students were divided into groups and chatted in both English and Chinese for three 10-minute sessions. Students from both cities enjoyed this meeting and will participate in a second meeting in April. The event was featured in local newspapers in Hualien.
