In this auspicious Chinese Year of the Dog, our city has good reason to celebrate 35 years of unparalleled success in Chinese language learning. Edmonton’s Chinese Bilingual Program made headlines when it was described by Chinese education officials as the “best Chinese language program outside of China.” The Chinese program which started in 1982 boasts the city’s largest annual enrolment of all bilingual language programs – over 2000 students studying Mandarin from kindergarten to grade 12 in a 13 public schools easily accessible from anywhere in the city.
Each of our 13 schools is partnered with a school in China, which strengthens our relationships internationally. The significance of our Chinese Bilingual Program goes beyond linguistic acquisition; it is richly infused with Chinese culture at every grade level.
