Sending your child to The Dalton School makes a world of sense. Your child will not only be learning the fastest growing language on our planet, they will be learning the fastest growing second language in the West.
Mandarin requires the use of more areas of the brain than learning English, French or Spanish. Learning traditional Romance languages such as French or Spanish focuses on the use of the left side of the brain. On the other hand, Mandarin, due to its character symbol relationship and tones, requires the use of both the right and left side of the brain. Young children easily absorb the difficult tones and nuances of the Mandarin language.
At The Dalton School, your child will be exposed to two phonological systems, two writing systems and two vocabularies – and be able to converse with billions of people on our planet.
