Foothills' Chinese Immersion Program In the News

Deseret News published an article featuring our own Foothills Elementary and its Chinese Immersion Program.

"First-graders in Susan Shumway's Chinese immersion class at Foothills Elementary School in Riverton never hear her speak English. And after the first half of the school year, they never speak English to her, either.

Everything in class is done in Mandarin, regardless of whether they are studying vocabulary words or math. They even color in Chinese — singing familiar children's songs, but with oh so unique lyrics, as they color and cut at their desks." (Deseret News 4/11/2011)
