About Chinese Immersion Program
According to the Center for Applied Linguistics, immersion programs are the fastest growing and most effective type of world language program available in U.S. schools. Immersion students develop proficiency in the target language by hearing and using it to learn academic content rather than only studying the language itself.
Our Chinese immersion program provides an innovative approach to learning Chinese language as well as Chinese culture for children in pre-school through 6th grade.
With many years of experiences in language education, our curriculum combines language immersion with a world-renowned educational methodology. This method fosters true fluency and provides our students with a global advantage and a world of opportunity. Each class is nurturing and intimate.
Conducted in Chinese, our Chinese language classes present a series of exciting cultural and social activities that cover a wide range of interests and learning styles while immersing the students in the Chinese language naturally.
Potential students are encouraged to come in for a free trial lesson.
