Due to demand, Ni Hao Children's Community Charitable Trust is providing Beginners Mandarin classes (Level 1) in the Khandallah area from Term 2 onwards, on Tuesdays 3:30-4:40pm at The Village Church. This is open to children in Years 1 to 8 (however if there is large mix of ages, we will split into two classes: Years 1-4 and Years 5-8). 

 

Your child will learn Mandarin Chinese as a Foreign/Additional Conversational Language in a fun and engaging way, in a full immersion environment with their peers. Our programme is for those from non-Chinese backgrounds and Chinese heritage  families who do not use Mandarin.
The children will learn in a way that is meaningful and relevant to life (practical, not academic), with social interaction/conversation, games, raps. We do not spend time painting or making crafts as the focus is on developing oral language skills. Your children will also be introduced to some basic Chinese character writing related to the curriculum. (Please note that learning a new language once a week is a long term commitment. Our programme is planned for children to attend consecutive terms / school years).
