[still dealing with sickies, so posting will remain on the light side]
The Christian Broadcasting Network's news division has an article/video up about the ascendance of Mandarin Chinese as a global language. As part of the piece DC's Yu Ying charter school is profiled. (With a couple of fleeting shots of one of my chicklets... woo hoo!)
[thanks to Conan the Grammarian for catching the (egregious) spelling error]
UPDATE: Some folks are having issues watching the video from this page (I know I've had trouble with a Firefox/Linux combo). If you can't see the video try clicking on the link and viewing it from the CBN page.
