Curriculum - What you will learn from this course
CSL102 Chinese As Second Language  Age: 3~5

This course is carefully tailored to children aged 3-5 with no prior exposure to the Chinese language. It starts from scratch, building a solid foundation in both Chinese language and culture. Through dynamic lessons and interactive activities, we ensure that every child, regardless of their prior knowledge, embarks on an exciting journey of exploration and learning in the realm of Chinese language.

The curriculum primarily focuses on developing fundamental listening and speaking skills, introducing essential phrases and daily greetings, and immersing students in delightful children's songs.

CHN102 Chinese Reading  Age: 3~5

In this course, we focus on making Chinese exciting for your child! We achieve this by focusing on theme-related nursery rhymes, handcrafts, word-picture learning, classical poetry and simple conversations. This develops your child’s basic sense for Chinese while increasing their listening and speaking abilities. Specifically, your child will learn about animals, time, earth, family, daily life, and the seasons.


After two semesters, students will have mastered about 50 commonly used words to express themselves in Chinese. They will also be able to read and recite several songs and poems. In a final project, students will perform a play for their families that encompasses the entire semester and showcases each student’s learning.
