The Window Newsletter – Welcome Back to School

Northwest Chinese Academy has the Highest Percentage of Mandarin Immersion of Schools in the USA!
Dr. Shuhan Wang, President of ELE Consulting International, spent three
days at the end of August working with the teachers at Northwest Chinese
Academy. Dr. Wang had the opportunity to observe our classes in May,
and told the teachers that she has observed Mandarin Immersion schools
around the country and that NWCA students are exposed to the highest
amount of immersion that she has seen! She also said that our students,
“demonstrate high oral language and literacy skills in Chinese language,
one of the highest I have observed among many Chinese immersion
schools in the United States.”
