Online mandarin class

Recommended Posts

DS did Chinese 1 and 2 (Mandarin) thru FLVS (Florida Virtual School). The summer after Chinese 1, he was one of a dozen kids in the state to be selected to go to China for two weeks. (This was a program his FLVS Chinese 1 teacher suggested he apply for). Subsequently, he participated in two immersion programs during summers (via Startalk), and did Chinese 3 and 4 via DE. 

He is now a senior at a service academy and was fortunate to be able to spend a semester in China during his undergrad tenure.

Many people bash FLVS, but for both ds and dd, the strategic/transitional use of it for two years (9th and 10th) opened incredible doors for their futures that would not have been available had it not been for the people and experiences they encountered via FLVS. Like anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it.

FLVS courses are open to you whether or not you are a FL resident. Non residents have a tuition cost.
