The Learning Chinese Craze: August 27 Updates

The whole world is getting in on the Learning Chinese Craze.

From a country I have never spelled before, but which is located just to the west of China, Kyrgyzstan: 200 Kyrgyzstan students to learn Chinese in 2008

Very interesting piece on very young children in Denver who are studying in a Chinese immersion school (These schools are steadily increasing in number around the US): Their Future, In Any Language

As for the pedagogy, goals, and probably of success of these programs, I’m in the process of trying to figure those things out. I have a friend who has gotten involved in Chinese education in the United States. I’ll ask her.

There are many more, but I’ll post these two for now.
