Mandarin Explorers is for students just starting to explore Mandarin as a language and may or may not want to take additional programs later. They are beginners who have had no exposure to Mandarin previously. Our teachers use interactive activities to help children learn the fundamentals of Mandarin all while making it fun!

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

Classes run month-to-month and you can sign up anytime with no commitment.

Mandarin Voyagers is designed for students who are novice/intermediate level and have had exposure to the language (either at home or in class). They want a fun and engaging way to keep up with their Mandarin. Most students previously enrolled in our year-long programs should consider this stream.


The focus is on enrichment through speaking, listening, some reading, pinyin. For older ages, more reading, some writing.

Students register by term (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). As students get exposure to the language on this learning voyage, there will also be review exercises & summaries provided for practice at home. Previously, students had to enroll for the full year but now can enroll by term.
