Why Chinese Immersion?

  • Chinese is the most widely spoken first language in the world. The Mandarin dialect is the official language of China and Taiwan, and is widely spoken in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines and Mongolia. According to the most recent US census, Chinese is actually the third most spoken language in the United States.

     China is the heir to the traditions of one of the world’s richest and most ancient cultures and is the world’s second largest economy. According to a Bloomberg study of the most important languages for international business, Mandarin Chinese ranks first after English. China’s economic, political and cultural impact in the next few years will have a significant impact on the world. As business relationships deepen between Delaware and China, having skills to communicate in Mandarin will be an invaluable economic advantage.
