A Connecticut school will soon offer Mandarin Chinese for kids to learn if the town’s school board agrees to a recommendation from the school superintendent, The Cheshire Citizen reports.
Part of the reason for the suggestion is the recent trend for schools to start offering Chinese classes for kids.
“Assistant School Superintendent Scott Detrick said he’s seen more and more school districts offering Chinese in the state and nationwide,” the article from The Cheshire Citizen said.
If the vote passes tonight, the school is likely to offer the classes online first, then later in a classroom once a teacher is found for the job.
We think it’s great the school is so seriously considering adding Chinese to their curriculum, and hope Chinese Fridge can help their students by providing a fun way for kids to learn Chinese by playing our game app.
