Mandarin immersion programs are growing in popularity, with at least 246 programs in schools in 31 states and the District of Columbia in 2017.

This Brief is written for parents who are considering placing their child(ren) in a Mandarin immersion program, or for those parents whose child(ren) is already attending one.
