Dear Dr. Iris Xu,
Thank you so much for your support of Weekend Immersion in Languafe Development. This is my third year to study French in this program, and each year had been a valuable and fun learning experience for me. The addition of Chinese in the program means that more students will be able to reap the benefits of this program. I'd like to thank you and everyone at the Confucius Institute for supprting my valuable experience at WILD this weekend.

Dear Dr. Iris Xu, Director of the Confucius Institute:
I am pleased to write to you to tell tou how valuable the Weekend Immersed in
Language Development was for me. Thank you so much for your support of this program.
It helped me to learn more about the culture of the countries where Spanish is spoken.
It also gave me the opportunity to practie this language that I am studying in school
and without this program I could not afford to have that experience.
Interpersonal understanding and cross-cultural communication are tintegral to fulfilling my edcuational potential. Also, in this shrinking world it is very improtant to understand the language and culture of people from other countries for international business and relations. As an aspriring journalist, expanding my communication abilitites by learning Spanish will certainly open doors for my future.

To whome it may concern; Dr. Iris Xu,
I had a wonderful experience here at WILD weekend. Chinese has been a great passion
of mine since the afe of five and all it has done is grown since then. This language
immersion had not only enhanced my oral skills in Chinese but also exposed me to so
much culture that I had previously never been a part of. From Taichi fan dancing to
Baozi breakfast, I have loved every moment of this experience.
Furthermore, the teachers were not only competent but extremely caring. I felt cared for the entire weekend and everyone here, teachers and fellow studetns, feel like family. I am so grateful for having the opportunity to have this Chinese immersion experience here at WILD and I wish I had done it throughout my entire high school career.
