A public high school in New York will offer Chinese classes for its students for the first time ever, starting this year.
Kids at Fairport High School will be able to take beginning Chinese class in September, according to the Fairport-East Rochester Post.
Students will learn grammar, pronunciation and writing for Mandarin Chinese in the elective class offered through the Chinese School of Rochester. Nearby Brighton High School will host the 16 consecutive weekly lessons on Saturdays.
We applaud all of these schools for coming together to make these Chinese lessons for kids a reality. We’re excited Fairport High School is taking a big step in offering Chinese language classes for the first time ever, and wish them and the program success!
