What we teach:

The language section has 3 levels. In the beginner's level and intermediate level , we focus on developing speaking and listening skills through playing games, singing Chinese songs, reading Chinese poems, listening to Chinese stories, and exercising.
In the advanced level and heritage Chinese, we focus on developing conversational, presentation, story reading and story/essay writing skills. The top of the class will have an opportunity to participate in the speech contests in the near future.
