For Chinese Students

Be Your Own Tourist Guide.

These resources were developed by Jun Wang, Chinese Assistant as part of the Assistants to Teachers of Chinese program in 2009. Students are challenged to become a tourist guide and create an itinerary in English and present it as a PowerPoint. At Sovereign Hill students research the activities available for their itinerary  and use their own cameras to take photographs.
