Big Moves: Xiangqi (Chinese Chess) at Swarthmore

July 2, 2014

In one of our afternoon activities, students learned  about Chinese Chess orxiangqi in today’s class with Xie Laoshi! From pao to bing to ma and ju, we learned how to hold our own against the best! Whether in China or beyond, this classic game is a past time that we’ll now all be able to enjoy!

Additionally, it was a hot day, so students also got to hit the pool, play mahjong and prepare our “propaganda” for MMLA Field Day 2014! Students have already memorized our mantra for the summer– “多喝水” – drink more water!!! Much, much more to come!
