Participation in foreign languages classes is highly encouraged for high school students in Missouri, and many colleges require them for admission.

A new Chinese language program will be taught at several Columbia public schools. The program is a partnership between Columbia Public Schools and University of Missouri’s International Program and Confucius Program. Three Chinese teachers will be training Columbia School teachers the language so they can start the program in fall of 2013.

The Institute signed the memorandum on Friday for the program and Spanish teacher John Becker is happy they have it set in stone.
