* Broadneck High School, Severn and Magothy Middle Schools don't offer Chinese language.

* Our Children deserve the opportunity to at least have a variety of language options that will benefit their future.

* Having natural Born Citizens speaking Chinese is important to National Security and Economic Growth.

*Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world with approximately 1,197,000,000 people speaking Chinese, of which 873,000 million speak Mandarin, according to infoplease.com therefore 14% of the global population speaking Chinese.

* As well as China, Mandarin is spoken in countries such as Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Brunei, Philippines and Mongolia so if you do business in these countries then it would be beneficial to converse in their language.

* Learning Chinese improves your brain power. We know we need to keep are brains well oiled and studies have shown that Mandarin speakers use both sides of their brains! This will certainly keep brains motoring.

* Speaking Chinese improves artistic skills. Chinese symbols and characters require a steady hand. The written words are actually iconographic characters rather than letters. These symbols and characters are created using ‘strokes’ rather like painting.

* Chinese economy is booming: Due to the lack of people in the Western business world who can speak both Chinese and English, there’s a huge demand for these skills, and this can of course mean very lucrative wages. Through learning Chinese, you can transform yourself from a low value employee into somebody who is critical to the success of a project in China, thereby making yourself a very attractive hire.

*Our students deserve the best

* Chinese Program is already in Anne Arundel County: Our school principals and leadership choose not to offer Chinese Language. More people in the world speak Chinese than English, and we owe it to our children to at least offer a Chinese Language Program. 

* Support having Chinese Language option for our kid’s success and for their future.
