In The Moment ... Learning Chinese In Aberdeen

In The Moment ... October 5, 2017 Show 192 hour 1

In 2015, South Dakota was the only state in the country that didn't have some kind of Chinese language opportunity in the public school system. That same year, Northern State University in Aberdeen established their Confucius Institute--a Chinese cultural and language education partnership with the University of Jinan in China. This fall, that partnership extended to Aberdeen's Central High School.

SDPB's Jackie Hendry sat in on the Chinese language class and shares the unique opportunity both for Central's students and their new teacher.
