Learning Mandarin Chinese is a great opportunity for expanding world view and developing calm, and mindfulness, through Chinese Painting, Calligraphy, Chinese Go and Tai Chi. We plan our activities to encourage students to fully engage with the Mandarin Chinese language and culture. In this way their experience is interesting and fun in a fully supportive environment. Students are grouped according to language proficiency. This Mandarin Chinese “After School Enrichment” program provides the opportunity to learn “socially”, with new friends helping each other master new language and culture skills and knowledge through role-playing and corresponding conversational practice.
Sessions have different themes and materials for new and returning students. The activities foster both collaborative and self-education according to their levels. This is also a great preparation for students planning to take Mandarin Chinese in Middle and High School.
Our supportive and engaging teaching methods utilize unique creative ideas to make our lessons enjoyable and educational. Our purpose is to give students an inspiring language learning experience.
