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.
