China Institute’s Chinese for Children Program offers classes after school during the academic year. Children gain familiarity with Chinese language and culture in active classroom environments. Instruction centers on a "whole language" approach in which teachers introduce all four elements of language acquisition: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Classes are taught by native speakers or near native speakers with extensive experience. All classes are 30 sessions and last a whole academic year. In addition, private tutoring is available. We also offers exciting family workshops, ranging from dance and storytelling sessions to lantern- and dumpling-making workshops.
The Children’s Program offers an interactive and
engaging style of learning Mandarin.

If this is not possible, China Institute will evaluate whether a refund or credit should be issued. Courses may be canceled for insufficient enrollment between the first and second session. Should this occur, the students enrolled will receive a full refund or credit, except for the non-refundable registration fee of $50.
