Chinese language learners at the International Academy of New York (IANY) were invited by the China General Chamber of Commerce to perform at their annual awards gala last Monday. The event promotes meaningful relationships between the U.S. and China, something that IANY, a bilingual school, values. The students, ages 5 to 8, opened the event in front of some 400+ attendees by performing several songs in Chinese, exhibiting not only their Chinese language skills, but their confidence and poise as performers.

At IANY’s language program, children work toward fluency in either Mandarin Chinese or Spanish.
