Welcome to the website of WenLin Chinese School!
With all my heart, I believe that education is the key to unlocking the best in our society, and that every person should be given the opportunity to learn about the many cultures of this world. In this respect, I believe that the Chinese culture, one of the most ancient of all being more than 5000 years old, holds much of the beauty of the world, and as such everyone can benefit greatly from understanding it.
At WenLin we welcome anyone who is curious and eager to learn, so stay assured that if you join us you will have the opportunity to meet a varied community of grown ups and children of all age groups who are enthusiastic and share a deep passion for the Chinese culture and its fascinating language.
You may be wondering where the name “WenLin” comes from. Wen (文) is taken from my first child's Chinese name, Dawen (达文): it means academic, literary, or cultural. Lin (麟) is taken from my younger son's name, Dalin (达麟), which I got from Qilin (麒麟), a Chinese mythical creature that is an omen of prosperity. You can read more about it here. In giving our school the names of my children, I wanted to identify it as my beloved "third child".
I am sure that I speak on behalf of all the staff here at WenLin when I say that we do love every minute of our work here. We have the passion to teach and share knowledge with the people around us, and we would like to share what we know with you. I hope you will enjoy your time in our school and come to love it as much as we already do.
Our children are the future of our society, and we have set up WenLin School with the firm belief that here they will be able to gain a valuable set of skills and experiences that will assist them in their life’s path.
Once again, I welcome you all to WenLin Chinese School!
With best wishes,
Rosa Haiyun Wang
