Many parents believe the best time to learn a second language is from the toddlers age. WenLin Chinese School offers bespoke Mandarin classes to children in early years. WenLin's Mandarin Explorer course is a two year Mandarin teaching curriculum designed and continuing modified in house for early years. The course contents design are all based on children's physical, lingual and mental development and their understanding of the world around them. This course provides systematic introduction of Chinese as a secondary language to children in early years with foundation knowledge and skills in listening, understanding, speaking, and reading of the language of the future. The course will be delivered primarily in Mandarin Chinese, using songs, rhymes, stories, drama and interactive games. Children will be able to laugh, giggle and dance with the teacher. They will learn words that are very relevant to the life around them such as families, animals, colours, numbers, toys etc. and other basics.
Our courses contents and activities are designed around the guidelines set by the Department for Education, Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (March 2014). The activities are challenging and enjoyable. They are purposefully designed with a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. For Mandarin Explorer: Bear (1yr - 3yr) more children-led activities are planned. For Mandarin Explorer: Panda (3yr -5yr) a more adult-led structured interactive learning is planned, with the objective to prepare children for learning Chinese further in KS1.
**Children in Bear class will have priority to move up to Panda class when they passed their 3rd birthday.
