Leads: Growing Number Of Americans Learning Their ABC's In Chinese

| 1 Comment

I chose to write about the lead in the article from NPR.

The lead is somewhat general, but it keeps the reader wanting to know more. It starts off talking about President Obama welcoming the Chinese President to the White House. It also mentions that a group of students from the Yu Ying school joined them.

The lead gives detailed facts about where the school is, what the school is, and why the school is notable, stating that it is the first Chinese immersion school in the nation's capital.

The immediate mention of President Obama also intrigues the reader as to how he's connected to Americans learning more Chinese.

This lead works as a setup for the rest of the story, which goes on to give more specific facts about the school and its students.
