Appreciation From the Community
Dear Dr. Xu,
Thank you (Chinese). I really enjoyed the WILD program. I was in the Chinese
program. I learned a lot. I wouldn't have missed it for anything.
Thank you for participating in WILD and giving us students a better chance to learn Chinese.
I love you my good friend. See you in China. (Chinese)
I will never forget you. will keep learning Chinese till I know it well.
Again thank you (Chinese).
Dear Dr. Iris Xu,
Thank you so much for your support of Weekend Immersion in Language 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 supporting 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 you 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 practice 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 integral to fulfilling my educational potential. Also, in this shrinking world it is very important to understand the language and culture of people from other countries for international business and relations. As an aspiring journalist, expanding my communication abilities by learning Spanish will certainly open doors for my future.

To whom 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 age 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 Tai Chi 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 students, 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.
