“I put my children in the Chinese dual immersion program because I wanted to challenge them.  Though they could have tested for a program like ALPS, I would rather have them learn a second language, a skill that could last throughout their life. Our experience has been fantastic.  My boys have loved learning the language, and we as a family have loved learning more about the Chinese culture. From the Chinese New Year celebrations to visiting the Chinese market, or hosting a Chinese student, it has been rewarding to see my children interact with and learn from native speakers.  I am excited to see them progress each year and cannot wait to take them all to China someday and see them use their language firsthand.  The program has been challenging, but it has also been worth the effort.” – Maria Scott, parent of four Monte Vista Chinese DLI students

“It’s really been a great experience because learning a second language is awesome!” – Ethan Scott, Monte Vista Chinese DLI sixth grader

“For the last six years, the DLI program has expanded our family’s knowledge of the world. In an increasingly global economy, the language skills gained will position our children for future opportunities both here and abroad. There aren’t words enough to express our gratitude to the dedicated Chinese teachers at Monte Vista Elementary that have taught our children a language we never could have taught them ourselves.”
