Program Title: Mandarin Chinese Immersion School for Afterschoolers

Description: This class is designed for children ages 6 to 12. Class sizes are kept small. Teachers are native speakers of Mandarin Chinese with good or excellent English. Ideally suited for children who go to school during the day, with or without Mandarin Chinese instruction. Children will learn how to converse in Mandarin Chinese (spoken Chinese) and how to read and write Chinese characters (written Chinese) through various methods of instruction, which include more traditional methods of sitting in a chair, at a table, and the teacher before them at the white board, but they will also learn Mandarin Chinese and Chinese through fun and games, arts and crafts, songs, stories, physical movement and exercise, outside activities and more. In a modified "bushiban" type of format, children will also have the opportunity to do their Chinese homework (assigned during the day at their regular schools, presuming they go to a Chinese immersion public or private school), and get assistance on it. For instance, their Chinese math homework or Chinese language arts homework. Children new to Chinese will learn fundamentals of listening and speaking and correct pronunciation. Children who already possess some Mandarin Chinese will continue to build on what they know. Chinese characters will be taught, as well as pinyin/bopomofo transliteration system.
