中文双语课程 Mandarin Dual Language Program






Mandarin Dual Language Immersion Program

As China has become one of the largest trading partners of the United States and the second largest economy in the world, the significance of knowing Mandarin is quite obvious. The US Department of Defense has ranked Mandarin as the second most important foreign language.

Many people believe that the best way for children to excel in foreign languages is to learn in an immersive environment. In addition, research shows that academic levels of children educated in a dual language immersion program often surpass those of children educated in English only.
By offering students early education to learn Mandarin, understand Chinese culture and the people, we can prepare them for better opportunities in a globalized world in which the U.S. and China will continue to be major players.
