Pupils at the Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School already are called upon to practice their developing language skills through the day with teachers and peers.

This fall, they’ll be using their Mandarin Chinese to communicate with elementary pupils in Beijing, too.

Principal Bryan Bordelon expects to see the magnet school’s pupils sharing letters, e-mails and Skype conversations next school year with the students of a Chinese campus named Elementary School Affiliated to Renmin University.

The two schools formed a relationship in April. As their relationship continues, they will share expertise, resources and learning experiences.

“This is a phenomenal opportunity for our students to put their new language skills to use and make real-world connections,” Bordelon said. “It really does put a human face on what we’re learning now.”
