USC helps launch Mandarin Chinese immersion school
COLUMBIA, S.C. — The University of South Carolina’s Confucius Institute is helping launch a Mandarin Chinese immersion school that opens in the fall.
USC spokeswoman Peggy Binette said Wednesday the Institute is helping arrange for five teachers from China to serve on the faculty at the state charter school.
Instruction will be available for 4-year-old and 5-year-old kindergarten as well as first and second grades. Additional grade levels are expected to be added each year to the Cayce school.
