Eastern vs Western
We are the 3rd grade Chinese Immersion Classes. There are 38 students in two classes. Each day, we spend a half day in the English room and a half day in the Chinese room. Our goal is to learn both languages simultaneously. In America, most of kids don’t study a second language until they are in 6th grade. Here are some things we are curious about in Chinese schools.
