(10 to 14 years old)
This class uses an immersion approach and Mandarin will be used 90% in class and eventually ONLY Mandarin will be used in this class. Class will be separated into the intensive language class (45 – 60 min) and the movement experience class (45 – 60 min).
Students will learn subjects relevant to their everyday lives, which will make learning engaging and exciting. Instead of memorizing individual characters, students will learn meaningful sentence structures, teaching them how to communicate in Chinese. Creative role-playing and acting will be used as a springboard for students to use their language skills. There may also be some take-home materials for the children to practice at home.
During the movement class, the students will be learning Chinese dance, drama and creative movement in a immersion environment, where Mandarin is spoken 90% of the time.
These classes will empower students with knowledge and confidence to explore Chinese language and culture, and give them a lifelong appreciation for the language.
