Mandarin learn and play for children:

Mandarin Learn and Play for Children is designed for 3- to 5-year olds, and is held in a classroom across the hall from the adults. Children's class time: 10:00 AM to 11:30 PM

The emphasis for children is on learning a beginning Mandarin vocabulary through songs, games and story telling in a fun and relaxed environment. This is not an immersion program and English is also spoken in the classroom. The children will work on Mandarin vocabulary appropriate to their level of learning. Simple words and phrases and some character recognition is taught through worksheets and stories of China. There is discussion and introduction to Chinese culture through crafts and songs. Class size is limited to 10 students.

There will be a fall session starting the beginning of September 17, 2005. Please call the center (415) 986-1822 to find out more information or to register your child.
