Award winning journalist, Elizabeth Weise, Presents at Shu Ren

Wednesday, February 26, 2020


A special thank you to the Parent Community Group for sponsoring our special guest author, Elizabeth Weise, an award winning journalist and author of “A Parent’s Guide to Mandarin Immersion.” Elizabeth’s book was inspired by her own journey as a parent navigating a Mandarin Immersion education for her two daughters in San Francisco. She shared with the audience the history of Mandarin immersion in the United States, how it has changed in recent years and the trajectory of immersion program growth. As a parent, Elizabeth reflected on her journey as a non-Chinese speaking family in an immersion environment--the joys, tips, tricks and also frustrations of committing to a Mandarin immersion education. It was an informative evening and we are looking forward to her updated book and inviting her back in the near future!
