Chinese for Kids

Learn Chinese for Kids – Chinese Classes for Children in Virtual Classrooms

We offer Chinese classes for children age 6-17 through virtual classrooms using Zoom. Learn Chinese for Kids is our language program developed for elementary school students age 6-11 who want to develop a solid foundation in the Chinese language. Our Chinese lessons for kids are taught by dedicated native Chinese teachers in Australia who possess degrees in education or language teaching, and have completed Working With Children Check.

The Chinese lessons that we teach place emphasis on building children’s conversational fluency in Mandarin Chinese, using pinyin (romanised Chinese writing) to facilitate them in learning the target language. Our Chinese classes are also enriched with cultural information so that kids will not only acquire the language skills, but also the cultural skills. We believe in creating a fun, friendly environment for children to learn a language. This is reflected through the methods and materials we use in teaching our students Mandarin Chinese. Our Chinese teachers are passionate in helping their young students to successfully acquire the target language, and sharing interesting cultural fun-facts with the little ones.

Our complete Chinese language program for children is delivered in 16 terms. We recommend that students attend their Chinese classes four terms annually to provide them with year round exposure to the Chinese language. Parents can accompany very young learners during their first term of study to assist them with the use of technology.

We provide a range of study options. Children can learn 1-to-1 in a private Chinese class or with their sibling – this option gives you the flexibility of choosing your own day and time.  They can also learn in small group classes – this more affordable option is best suited to families who can commit to regular weekly schedules during the term in the afternoon. Our standard Chinese lessons for kids are one-hour in duration, however, we can cater to the diferent needs of our  students and provide lessons of a shorter duration. Send an enquiry or call (773) 887 2827 to discuss the best options for your children.
