More About the Class:

Class Curriculum and Goals

Our goal is for each student to go from reading 0-300 characters by the end of the course!  We achieve this by providing tons of fun activites in class along with review materials for students to use outside of class.  We use the popular Odonata graded readers to help students gradually build vocabulary.  We offer this course in both simplified and traditional characters.  You can choose which option you'd like at checkout. 

Expectations

Students are expected to utilize the review materials we provide and review every day for 10-15 minutes.  Just a few minutes every day will double your retention and save parents money! (Learning faster=less classes needed=saved $$)

Prerequisites

All students should have a good foundation in the spoken language before signing up for this class.  Students who have taken at least 1 year of Mandarin lessons are usually a good fit for this class.
