East Asia Storytime

It's said that the best time to learn a language is when you're young. The Center's East Asian Story Time (EAST) was designed with this in mind. Our program brings bilingual stories to your classroom. Stories are read both in English and in the target language—Japanese, Chinese or Korean. A hands-on activity is provided to reinforce language learning. To schedule an EAST at your school, please contact Randi Hacker, Outreach Coordinator, at
