Shuang Wen School of NYC (雙文學校)

A member pointed out this public elementary-middle school bilingual program next to the Chinatown in New York City. Of the few middle school programs that I had researched, Shuang-Wen’s graduating 8th graders in 2009 have the best colloquial skill I have heard so far. A few of the students spoke really well (mostly girls) and I wonder if some of them are actually youth immigrant themselves. One girl said that she was only there for 3 months; so, she probably doesn’t count. Given it is so close to Chinatown, there is a good chance that the majority of the students are second generation children or youth immigrants, which make it easier in terms of instruction.
