Mandarin Explorers
for 5 years old and under

 

Mandarin Explorers is for students under the age of 5 who are just starting to explore Mandarin as a language. They can be beginners or may speak the language at home. Regardless, our teachers will use interactive activities to help children learn the fundamentals of Mandarin or reinforce what they know, socialize, all while making it fun for our young learners.

The focus is on introducing speaking, listening, and Chinese culture.

Classes run by term (Fall, Winter, Spring), and we provide in-person classes for Under 2 years old (U2), Under 4 years old (U4), and 4-5 years old. We also provide virtual-only options for select times for 4-5 years old.

Mandarin Voyagers is designed for students who are beginner to novice/intermediate level. They can be total beginners or have had prior exposure. They want a fun and engaging way to learn Mandarin while developing proficiency on this learning voyage.

Using the Youth Chinese Test (YCT) curriculum, the focus is on enrichment through speaking, listening, reading, pinyin, and some writing. For older ages, there will be more reading and writing. Textbooks will be provided along with review exercises & summaries provided for practice at home. 

Students register by term (Fall, Winter, Spring). We provide in-person classes for 6-8 years old and 9+ years old. We also provide hybrid/virtual options at the same time as in-person classes, so students may join in-person classmates over Zoom, or have dedicated virtual classes if there are enough students learning online.

Mandarin Scholars is especially for students who have had exposure to the language and are already proficient in conversational Mandarin. They are at an advanced level in order to join with the ability to read pinyin. A textbook/workbook will be provided.

 

The focus is on an academic approach to speaking, listening, reading, pinyin, writing with a lot richer vocabulary being taught using the 马立平中文 (Ma Li Ping Zhong Wen) series of books compared to our Mandarin Voyagers classes.

Note: an assessment will be conducted prior to the student joining the program.
