Does anyone have any leads on foreign language instruction (French or Mandarin Chinese) in the Jackson area for children? Thanks.

Hard to believe you aren't getting swamped with answers.....

How old are the kids?
If you can't find a class I would highly recommend Rosetta Stone. The Mandarin Level I Home school edition is $224, not cheap, but probably less money than lessons. It can be set up for multiple students and is great for self starters/motivated kids or parents that are involved.

If you kids finish all 3 level they can take placement tests via certain colleges and get credits for their knowledge. Mandarin is probably the best language to learn for international business, as they're going to really rise to power in the next 20-30 years.

At St. Andrew's school most students take either French, Spanish, or Mandarin Chinese. You might check with them.

How old are the children? There is a very active chapter of the Alliance Française. Many of the members have children. There are also adult classes. You may want to check with them to see if there are any offerings for children.
