Your children’s homeschooling journey will be enriched by the addition of homeschool foreign language programs. For foreign languages that use non-latin alphabets such as Chinese and Japanese, learning the target language without the guidance of a professional teacher can be difficult. And yet, the study of Chinese or Japanese which involves completely different writing systems, sounds, and cultures, will provide invaluable experience and skills to homeschooled children.
Many scientific studies have claimed that learning a foreign language delivers cognitive advantages to learners. Experts further claim that learning a second language can actually improve learners’ understanding of their first language and enhance their overall academic performance. Children who learn a second language are also found to be able to multitask and focus better. A study by Sarah Creel from the University of California shows that learning Chinese could heighten kids’ musical abilities. Other studies have also claimed that learning Japanese or Chinese makes kids learn mathematics better as those languages use simpler numerical concepts.
Asian Language School complements your homeschool programs with our online Chinese or Japanese language classes. Students will interact with their teachers face-to-face from their computers through virtual classrooms (Zoom). Our teachers are degree-qualified educators living in Australia who have been selected for their skills and dedication in teaching children. Our homeschool foreign language programs in Chinese or Japanese are ideal for non-background learners who wish to become fluent in the target language.
Our language programs are flexible and comprehensive. You are free to enrol your children in just one or two terms to support their foreign language education and resume in future terms as you wish. We teach 1-to-1 lessons and small group classes for siblings learning together. Speak to us about payment plans and alternative class options to suit your family. Call (02) 9152 8740.
