Chinese as Second Language

AnchorChinese-as-Second-Language (CSL)
After-School Program

We want to help ele­men­tary school chil­dren with no pri­or Chi­nese expo­sure
learn to under­stand and speak Man­darin Chi­nese.

This class helps chil­dren learn to lis­ten and speak begin­ning Chi­nese.
Suit­ed for chil­dren with no pri­or lan­guage expe­ri­ence OR for kids who may be out of prac­tice speak­ing Chi­nese.
Chil­dren learn Chi­nese through inter­ac­tive activ­i­ties and songs.

We have sep­a­rate low­er ele­men­tary and upper ele­men­tary class­es to pro­vide chil­dren the best learn­ing expe­ri­ence suit­able for their age & devel­op­men­tal needs.
