Wellesley schools will soon serve up a little Chinese

Posted by Ralph Ranalli December 24, 2007 09:43 AM


The Wellesley Middle School and High School language curricula will soon include Mandarin Chinese, school officials said.

Currently, the schools offer Spanish, French, Latin, and German, said Adam Blumer, principal of the Middle School, during a recent presentation to the School Committee. The Middle School will begin offering Chinese to seventh graders.

"It reflects the notion that this is a language that is increasingly important for our kids to know," Blumer said.
