Anya Drack, 6, runs into her Mandarin Chinese class on a Saturday afternoon this past spring and immediately approaches her instructor, Fan Youxin. The two start playing a patty-cakes game reviewing Chinese numbers. Drack’s excitement comes after six weeks of attending the UI Confucius Institute’s Family Mandarin Chinese Classes for elementary students and their parents.
