Mandarin through Play, Interest and Excitement for 3 to 7 year olds
Discover a world of Mandarin through storytelling, music and movement. Our dedicated teaching team is exceptionally good with children, providing a safe and patient environment that builds their confidence in learning and using Mandarin. We use a combination of teaching techniques that involve imagination, games and flashcards. Children will be taught elementary Han Yu Pin Yin. Classes are offered for beginners up to advanced. It is a requirement that your child is able to hold a pencil and go to the toilet by themselves before they can join this class.
We follow the Youth Chinese Test (YCT) syllabus, a test from China specifically for youths under the age of 16, which conforms to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. We teach much more than is covered in the YCT in terms of vocabulary and reading requirement that is appropriate for this age group.
C- Conversation & reading class
This class focuses on speaking, listening, reading and recognising Chinese characters. Here students will not only converse with each other but will take turns to read or tell stories to their classmates, to train their presentation skills.
R- Reading & writing class
This class focuses on reading, recognising Chinese characters and writing. We match pictures and stories to Chinese characters to aid in their memory.
