Despite a 6,494 mile difference, Beijing and Paradise Valley students discover its a small world after all.
From the time 13 Beijing students ages 8 to 13 arrived at Whispering Wind Academy and greeted their American counterparts with Nǐ Hǎo (Hello), global education took on a new meaning for both groups.
The students were part of an exchange established as Whispering Wind launches its Mandarin Language Immersion program and forms partnerships with Chinese students.
(See story about Chinese students visiting Whispering Wind and video of Superintendent James P. Lee, Ed.D., speaking Mandarin … or at least trying!)
Now interested PV students can get discounted rates to attend Barton International Summer Academy.
