VIDEO: Newark Students Learn Chinese

Language program is the only of its kind in the city

Students craving a lesson in culture need to look no further than Bard Early College High School, the only school in Newark that offers Chinese language classes.

The hour-long class, taught by John Weinstein, instructs Bard freshmen on the nuances of Mandarin, a dialect of Chinese typically spoken in the northern part of the country. It also offers teenagers an invaluable lesson in culture.

Watch the video above for more information.

I applaud you, Mr. Weinstein. That is a progressive step to take. When my son was in high school in 2003, they offered French, Spanish and Latin. Same languages I was offered in 1966. I sent him to learn Japanese outside of school.
