Why Panda Mandarin?
Panda Mandarin is committed to making learning Mandarin FUN, ENGAGING, and AUTHENTIC for all children. We have a variety of Mandarin classes for children between 1-12 years old, conveniently located in Midtown Toronto, on the Danforth, and Etobicoke. We also have exciting virtual programs that blend the best of our fun methodology with new technologies to make the learning experience safe yet captivating for students at home.
Our programs are highly interactive through music, games, and art but also with a strong focus on practical applications of Mandarin. In a small class size (max 10 students each class), students are well supported by a highly qualified teaching team as well as content to help them keep engaged outside the classroom.

Making a Difference
Mary Ng (MP)
"We know that gender equality benefits everyone. That is why our government is committed to the empowerment of women and girls, but fulsome change requires all of us to do our part. Initiatives like Girl. Strong. are part of this positive progress, inspiring young girls to live up to their fullest potential through personal and professional mentorship opportunities. Together, through government programs and policies and initiatives like this one, we will build an inclusive society; one in which everyone can benefit and everyone can succeed."
"My son is 5 and takes Panda Mandarin class during after-school hours. Panda Mandarin program provides a very interesting and highly engaging learning environment for him. The instructor offers various teaching tools to accommodate my son's learning preferences. They also plan fun group activities outside the classroom so as to develop his interests in learning Mandarin. My son enjoys the class a lot and it is always the highlight of all his school activities."
"I have to share a cute story...my daughter said she was singing Happy Birthday in Mandarin in her Grade 2 class and her classmates started asking lots of questions about Mandarin, how to say certain words, etc. Then she decided to sing it out for the entire class. Never in a million years did I ever think that would happen!"
