Gainesville girl to enhance her foreign language skills in China
Ivy Gerrell to spend six weeks in Shanghai speaking Chinese and learning the culture
Gainesville native Ivy Gerrell will head off to Shanghai, China, on June 23 to study the language for six weeks.
For the past four years, Ivy Gerrell has made studying the Chinese language part of her high school and college coursework. In fact, she opted to take a Chinese film class in the spring semester since the University of North Georgia Dahlonega campus (where she was dual enrolled) was not offering a double class. “I would watch the film in Chinese and discuss them in Chinese,” Gerrell said.
