9-12 Years Old & Teens

All classes are drop off

9-12 Beg (Beginning)

These kids are mature enough to be taught using a more traditional approach. Textbooks and dictionaries will be used for their reference. Our focus is on building their confidence in speaking and writing Mandarin Chinese at home and in public settings. Students design their own Chinese journal to showcase their progress.

9-12 IMS (Immersion; Students must know Pinyin)

This is a class where the teacher speaks mostly Mandarin. Children's enthusiasm for music, books, and movies is used to motivate and stimulate their interest in Chinese. Students are expected to engage smoothly in simple Chinese dialogue. In every class, we feature our weekly dialogue where students practice speaking and acting!

Students must be familiar with Pinyin before they can move to 9-12 IMS level.
For those who are not familiar with Pinyin, please also register the half an hour Pinyin Basic Class.

Students must be familiar with Pinyin before they can move to 9-12 IMS level.
