Looks like Alaska’s getting its first Mandarin immersion program
It will be launching at Anchorage’s Scienic Park Elementary School in the fall of 2016.
The school has offered Chinese language and culture lessons since 2008 but will now be starting an actual immersion program for the Kindergarten class.
The first round of a lottery to get into the program was held this spring but it looks as if there are still open seats and that another round will be held in June.
