  1. I’ll bet that second fact holds true for Vancouver as well, since the Cantonese-speaking people here outnumber the English-speaking people, making Cantonese the number one language in Vancouver. 😉

      • I believe they offer both Mandarin and Cantonese, starting at the Elementary level, but don’t quote me, it’s just what I’ve been told. It makes sense though, since they are both spoken more widely than English in Vancouver, and that is a fact.

      • Considering what we were just talking about, I thought I should first correct something I said, and then show you something you might find interesting. It seems the Chinese language courses start at Grade 4 in Vancouver, but regarding Mandarin in particular, I came across an article referencing a proposal that was put forth back in 2008, and I’m not sure if it passed or not, but if it did, it dealt with the teaching of “Mandarin in Kindergarten“. So is that early enough? They apparently want to take advantage of the younger child’s ability to pick up new languages. Since I have no young children, I don’t know if the proposal passed or not, and I didn’t read the whole article because I’m working on something else here, but I thought you would find it interesting.

      • Well, I am all for teaching languages at a young age. And Chinese, which one doesn’t really matter, for sure is a language you will be able to use in the future…
