Are you considering a local Chinese school for your child? Come hear what its like directly from a panel of foreign parents whose children attend locally-run, Mandarin-language education system this Sunday at beijingkids's 4th Annual Beijing International School Expo, taking place Jan 24 and Jan 25 at the Kerry Hotel Beijing.

Four expat parents whose children are currently enrolled in local Beijing schools will share their experiences in this Q&A style panel discussion on Sunday at 10:30am as part of the fair, where parents can learn about over 40 school choices in Beijing.

You'll hear what it's really like, why parents made this choice and if this choice is for you.

We'll address the merits and drawbacks of the Chinese system: Are the stereotypes true? Is the Chinese immersion, academic discipline and exceptional math your child will receive worth dealing with the bureaucracy, lack of an advanced English curriculum and the creativity-supressing, rote-learning methods? Or all of these misconceptions?

Parents on the panel have experience sending children to Chinese schools on the primary and secondary levels. Some of the local schools you'll hear about are Fangcaodi, Tsinghua Experimental School, Fuxue Hutong Primary School and Wangjing Experimental School.

Come join us this Sunday!
