A nice roundup of the programs in Seattle and elsewhere, from our friends at The Chinese Early Language and Immersion Network at the Asia Society. Their site is always worth visiting.

We hope that the school year is going well and that you and your students are enjoying many rich and exciting experiences learning and using Chinese!

Program Profiles
This month we are pleased to feature a Program Profile about the Mandarin Immersion Programs in Seattle, Washington, which serve students in grades K–7 and are expanding to higher grades. Started in 1995 by General John Stanford, then superintendent of Seattle Public Schools, the programs started with Spanish immersion and expanded to Japanese and then to Mandarin. The programs receive funding from many sources and offer rich opportunities for Seattle students to learn and use Chinese in the United States and Chinese-speaking countries. You can also read about other program profiles here.

The staff of the Mandarin Immersion Programs in Seattle are pleased to share the following curriculum resources:

Many additional resources are available in our collection of curricula and curriculum resources available from national organizations, states, districts, and schools. We believe that you will find this resource to be helpful. We would love to know about, and make available to others, curricula that you use in your Chinese language learning context. Please send your information to us at Thank you!

Don’t forget to visit the CELIN Program Directory to document your Chinese early language and immersion program or to search for other programs in your area or across the United States.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
