With China playing a more significant role in world affairs, there has been a growing interest in America for learning Mandarin by adults, youth and children.

Given this demand, Sui Wah School has established a program to offer Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced level Mandarin classes for youth and adults; Level I to IV Mandarin classes for children ages 3-14 years old.

The earlier children are exposed to learning a foreign language, the easier they are able to acquire it. Sui Wah School thus offers yearlong Mandarin classes for children. They will learn the language and culture in active classroom environments.

For the children’s classes, instruction focuses on everyday spoken Mandarin. Children learn a dynamic mix of Chinese language and culture through games, songs, stories and nursery rhymes in Levels I and II. Reading and basic characters and the Pinyin Romanization are integrated into the curriculum in Levels III and IV.

Instructors are native Mandarin speakers with advanced degrees, training, and experience in teaching Mandarin to non-Chinese speakers.
