Crystal Lake South High School Chinese Club, in Illiinois, launched its first event of the semester with an introduction to go (weiqi) by Chicago teacher and weiqi enthusiast Simon Xinming Guo, on Sept. 22nd. Guo came at the invitation of Ms. Lin Hsieh, the Chinese language teacher at the school. Ms. Hsieh hopes to use Weiqi to help her students to understand Chinese culture and to learn strategic thinking. Altogether, about 110 students from Crystal Lake South and Cary-Grove High school learned about weiqi in their Chinese language classes.
