The Chinese Language House is an environment which coordinates a living space with a shared interest in Asian culture and Chinese language.
The house allows for close interaction on a daily basis with the live-in faculty member from Beijing Normal University. The primary language of communication is Chinese.
Each resident’s cooperation with the live-in faculty member and the other inhabitants is essential to the success of the Chinese Language House. All students help plan for, and participate in, activities during their stay. A long-running activity has been the Cooking Group, a rotation utilizing the house's kitchen for group meals. Each year new goals and objectives are developed through conversations among the DAMELL Chair, Chinese Language House Committee, live-in faculty member, and Student Liaison.
Residency at the House is intended for students of Chinese language only. Residents are expected to participate in House programs and meals as well as take turns cooking and doing chores (including a termly House Day).
The Chinese Language House is located at 36 North Main Street on the corner of Choate Road. View floor plans on the website of the Office of Residential Life.
