Before your child begins studying at a Chinese Primary School, it is most important that he or she already understands basic spoken Mandarin. Further, many students who attend Standard 1 already know how to read and write basic Mandarin.
If you are not a Mandarin speaker, then we recommend that you start early and join our Baby PIE program. If your child is already 3 or 4 years old then then the Cutie PIE program at least four times a week is appropriate.
如果您不会中文，我们建议最好从Baby PIE开始加入我们的项目。如果您的孩子已经三岁或者四岁了，至少每周上四次Cutie PIE的课程比较合适。
If you already speak Mandarin at home then you may start with our Cutie PIE program. If you have time to coach your children at home then two or three times a week including one writing class should suffice, if not at least four times a week, including two writing classes.
