We'll be moving to Shenzhen next summer with a 6th grader, a 4th grader, and a 1st grader (and a preschooler). My older two are currently in a Chinese immersion at school. Their Mandarin is conversant (fluent for children), but their reading and writing is not to the same level. My about-to-be-a-Kindergartener will not have had language immersion experience before we move. The international school tuition is WAY out of our budget, but I'm concerned about sending my kids to a Chinese public school -- mostly because of the literacy issue.
Does anyone else on the forum have school-aged kids and any suggestions about what we could do for schooling?
