We are pleased to announce that CRLS Chinese students Masato Hall, Mehelet Asnake, and Farai Sundai competed in the Semi-Final National Chinese Speech Contest earlier this month.  The students successfully advanced to the Finals along with Amy Zhou who will advance to the finals in the Heritage group.  The Finals will take place remotely on April 9th.

This is a very competitive contest in which there are 549 students nationwide applying and only 10 finalists in each proficiency level who can advance to the Finals.  Masato Hall (Intermediate Mid), Mehelet Asnake (Intermediate High-Advanced Low), and Farai Sundai (Intermediate High-Advanced Low) are the only students from Massachusetts who got into the Finals in their language group.  

The students were thrilled with the contest results and expressed their gratitude to their teacher, Ms. Xiaoshu Jing, who is completing her second year as the CRLS Chinese teacher.  Two of the award recipients are graduates of our elementary and middle level Chinese Immersion program.  You can learn more about our CRLS Chinese program here.
