comment Trying to think of creative name for beginner Chinese class
@Growler 1. 中国行 does have the meaning "traveling to China", but it can be also a metaphor to meet your requirement. 2. Without a brief introduction aside, all metaphors would mislead students. 中国行 would be considered as "introducing travelling experience in China"; 东游记 would be even more difficult to guess your true meaning (though it's quite fascinating). In conclusion, you can't get both "accuracy" and "lively metaphor" at the same time :)

Just personally, I feel the names in this answer sound a little too academic, though they are actually more precise than "东游记".

If there's a 100-word brief introduction aside the title, "Journey to the East" would be a good name. If not, for "East", it would also often refer to Korea and Japan. Students may misunderstand what the curriculum is about.

You're welcome. But if you are a beginner, maybe it is not necessary to stick on such a minor problem :)

comment Chinese idiom for “tilt at windmills” or “fighting against windmills”
I feel there's some subtle meaning of "tilt at windmills" that the idioms in this answer haven't covered. But I can't tell what it exactly is ...
