Chinatown in Chicago

This past Saturday, July 18th, we made the trip into Chicago’s Chinatown with Professor Petrov. She guided us through parts of the neighborhood that really highlighted how the community was maintaining its culture in the midst of mainstream American culture. As we walked down the streets, we saw bilingual signs that advertised their goods and services in Chinese and English. We also had the good fortune of having a wonderful lunch in an authentic Chinese restaurant.

Chinatown is truly a community that has shown how it is possible to be bilingual in all aspects and at all ages!
