China Institute is NYC’s leading school of Chinese Studies. Founded in 1933, the School is chartered by the NYS Board of Regents and offers a wide range of fun and immersive small-sized Mandarin classes tailored to student’s age and abilities. The School runs the largest and most comprehensive Chinese language programs in NYC.
Spring 2018 new offerings include:
Mandarin Munchkins: Mandarin, Music and Movements! Come to learn Chinese language and enjoy a bonding time with your kid(s)! Your little ones are at a critical age to expand their exposure to languages, senses, mind and body coordination, social interactions, and more. Designed for both parents (caregivers) and children, this immersive Mandarin class is full of fun, engagement, and interactions. Our experienced teachers are native mandarin speakers with extensive training in early childhood education. No prior Mandarin knowledge is required for this class.
Chinese Go: Collaborating with New York Institute of Go, we are offering Chinese Go classes for kids (5 years old and up) at China Institute for the first time! Originated in China more than four thousand years ago, Go (围棋Wéiqí) is one of the four supreme artistic genres in Chinese culture, with the other three being Zither playing, Calligraphy, and Painting. Throughout its long history, there has never been a single duplicate game like Go. As the oldest game still played in its original form, Go is popular among men and women at all ages. Go is a mind sport, possessing simple rules yet endless strategies. It requires a unique integration and working of analytic (left brain) and artistic (right brain) mental abilities at the same time.
Thursday Study Hall: Supervised by our Chinese native speaking counselors on site, students will get help with their Chinese lessons and homework, explore our Chinese books collection and engage in conversations with our counselors and other students of Chinese language.
