After School

We offer two levels of after school Mandarin - For children new or just starting to learn Mandarin we use Better Chinese as the base, with influences from other teaching methods where appropriate. For children that already speak Mandarin, we use 马立平curriculum as base. For children who already used 暨南大学curriculum, parents can decide which to use.
