Guest Blogger Chris Livaccari: INTL Students Take Top Honors at the Mandarin Speech Contest!


INTL* Chinese Program students once again took top honors in the annual Mandarin Speech Contest sponsored by the Chinese Language Teachers Association of California. Our students received nearly 20 awards, including 3 first place and 4 second place wins (more than any other school), all in the most competitive and prestigious "full immersion" category, where INTL competes with other top national programs, such as Chinese American International School (CAIS). INTL students took nearly two-thirds of all the awards given in the immersion category. They represented extremely well and did a great job overall – we are proud of all of them!
