With the continued evolution of Asia’s social and economic influence around the world, Mandarin is quickly becoming one of the most important languages that your child can learn. This is also especially relevant if you anticipate spending a significant period of time in this region. As is the case with all languages, the sooner your child starts to learn Mandarin, the easier it will be … and the faster their progress.
Aimed at beginners to intermediates, the Mini Mandarin camp uses music, dance, storytelling, drama, art & craft and traditional games to teach in a fun and intuitive way, thanks to skilled and experienced Mandarin teachers and teaching assistants.
