Grand Rapids, Michigan Mandarin immersion program hosts students from Shanghai
Forest Hills Mandarin Chinese Immersion students recently hosted a group of 29 students from Shanghai at the Cascade Recreation Park.
In addition to lunch, the 60-plus children spent time on the newly installed play structure and participated in a few organized games.
But most importantly, it was a chance to practice their language skills while making new friends and having fun.
