This Winter, Let's Learn Mandarin & Cantonese

Winter 2024 Term Starts January 8th!


We can't believe 2023 has blown by so fast! Our Fall Mandarin & Cantonese classes have been so much fun for our students and teachers. Our Mandarin Explorers & Cantonese Explorers students have learned so many exciting topics from foods, animals, the weather, and family. Our Mandarin Voyagers students are progressing along with the YCT curriculum and some are even getting ready to level up and write their YCT exams in the new year! Our Winter Term registration is now open and we have even more learning options than ever before including:

  • More Cantonese classes

  • New Saturday classes in Markham

  • New beginner Mandarin Voyagers classes

  • And more Virtual options!


Winter Term starts January 8th until March 28th, 2024. Read on for our schedule.


 

Why Panda Mandarin?


If you've wondered why you should come to Panda Mandarin to learn Chinese or would like to convince a friend or family member of the benefits of joining Panda Mandarin, here are some key reasons.



  • We focus on making the learning experience fun, engaging, and practical

  • We keep our class sizes intentionally small so each child gets the attention they need

  • Since 2015, we've been designing our own curriculum & sourcing well regarded series designed especially for North American learners (YCT and 马立平《中文》) so you can be sure we have the best resources for your child

  • Our teachers are highly qualified and carefully selected from well regarded schools such as OISE at the University of Toronto

  • We provide extra value-add materials in Google Classroom, to help your child review & practice at home or provide 1:1 extra help sessions called Panda Practice

  • Most importantly, we want our students to develop a love of learning Mandarin so they want to come to class!


Come for a FREE trial class and check out our small class sizes, warm & welcoming teachers, and fun & engaging learning style that makes us not a typical Chinese school.


We’ve updated our schedule and we have many new and existing class options. Note: a textbook fee is required for new students to the Mandarin Explorers 4-5 yo Advanced, Mandarin Voyagers, and Mandarin Scholars classes. Prices are pro-rated if you join after the start of the term.
