Give your child a head-start in our globalized world with Chinese Mandarin language lessons for kids and teens. Offering a rich, unique culture and the second largest economy in the world, China is a powerhouse on the global stage. Learning Mandarin will open opportunities and fire up your child’s cultural curiosity, while building practical skills and boosting problem-solving, critical-thinking and listening skills.
We offer four different course types based around the age of participants, that are tailored to their developmental stages with age-appropriate lessons, activities and materials.
A boost for the brain
Research has found that children who learn a second language may be more creative, better at problem solving, faster learners, and find it easier to connect with different cultures.
Children also find it much easier than adults to learn a second (or third) language, because the language center of their brain is still in development.
