Enjoy learning Mandarin

Children in New Jersey who attend Verona schools have the privilege of learning Mandarin Chinese. Their education goes beyond chinese words and phrases, they also host events and entertaining evenings that showcase their abilities to sing in the Chinese language, and put on plays fully spoken in Chinese. They also have booths that show off their immersion of the Chinese culture, where they exhibit skills such as, “using the Chinese yo-yo to picking up popcorn with a chopstick, from calligraphy writing to origami.”

This program is excellent, because the students start their Mandarin lessons in 1st grade and continue with them through Middle School, High School, and well into College. They don’t continue with it because they are required to, they continue because they love learning Mandarin. These students genuinely enjoy the Chinese language.
