What the Chinese Immersion Program and Friends of CHIP are:
The U.S. Government classifies Mandarin Chinese as a Category IV language—one of the most difficult languages for native English speakers to learn. It is best learned in elementary School.
Researchers suggest the more difficult the language to learn, the greater the overall cognitive benefits.
Research shows that attaining fluency in a second language , particularly more diffi-cult languages, makes learning a third or more languages much easier.
The most widely spoken languages in the world:
Chinese: 2 billion+ (Mandarin Chinese: 1 billion+)
English: 514 million
Hindustani: 496 million
