Our classes

The major language of instruction is Mandarin Chinese.
Our class size is between 4 to 6 children.
We offer classes in Küsnacht ZH, Thalwil, Meilen, and Pfäffikon SZ.

Little Little Mandarins:

(Age 4 to 7)

This class is aimed for kindergarten and lower primary students. Children are led to learn easy dialogues in Mandarin Chinese through different fun activities, such as songs, rhymes, role-play, storytelling, and creative interactive tasks (the Natural Approach and the Tactile-kinesthetic Approach). We focus on correct Mandarin pronunciation and listening skills as well as helping them build interest in learning the Chinese language. Your children will also learn to write some simple Chinese characters in this class.

Little Mandarins:

(Age 8 onwards)

This class is aimed for upper primary school children. It centers upon familiarizing young students with Mandarin Chinese through a combination of learning activities and structured lessons (the Task-based Approach). It instills in children the confidence and competence to speak Mandarin naturally (the Natural Approach). We also lay special emphasis on reading and writing Chinese characters in this class.

Little Mandarin Private:

(Age 4 onwards)

We offer private tutoring classes for one child or a small group of up to three children. Location can be discussed. Besides classes which are tailored to individual’s requirement and speed, we offer several unique services, such as after-class real time recap video, cultural immersion through cultural events etc. Please click here for more details.
