Program Title: Mandarin Chinese Summer School for Children
Description: Summer school allows for children who have no had no exposure to Mandarin Chinese to get a feeling for the language and culture. For children who go to Mandarin Chinese schools during the school year, or who have had prior exposure to the language, it's a great way for them to learn new words and phrases, as well as to keep current during the summer -- to not lose the hard-earned conversational skills and reading/writing skills they have learned in the past and through the past school year(s). The focus in summer school is on conversation, but reading and writing of characters and pinyin is also covered.
This class is designed for children ages 3-5, and 6-12. Class sizes are kept small. Teachers are native speakers of Mandarin Chinese with good or excellent English. We keep the classes fun and the children engaged. Children will learn Mandarin Chinese conversational skills, as well how to read/write Chinese characters. In order to teach the language, we use various techniques that included but are not limited to simple mathematics, arts and crafts, singing and dancing, group games, story telling, physical activites all in Mandarin Chinese. In short, they will learn how to speak and understand spoken Mandarin Chinese and they will learn how to read and write some Chinese characters, including transliteration systems pinyin and zhuyin (bopomofo). (Children must be potty trained.)
