“Different languages protect and nourish the growth of different cultures, where different pathways of human knowledge can be discovered. It certainly makes life richer for those who know more than one language.” - Nicholas Ostler
CSE’s Chinese program is offered to our middle school students, who are highly interested in learning a different language and culture. We believe that children will benefit greatly from the multilingual and intercultural communication competence; and most importantly, the appreciation of cultural diversity. Mr. Deng, the Mandarin Chinese teacher at CSE, is dedicated to building students’ foundation skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Chinese as well as Chinese culture patiently and professionally. Mr. Deng graduated from University of Minnesota with a master’s degree of education. He is also holding a Chinese teaching license.
