Mandarin Afterschool Classes

Classes will be conducted on Zoom and open to children ages 3-5 years. 

Welcome to Frontiers Academy's Mandarin Enrichment after school program! Our program is an immersive journey, carefully curated to ignite a fervor for the Mandarin language while enhancing key linguistic competencies in our students.

Program Overview:
  • Engaging Curriculum: Starting with the basics, our students will delve deep into the language through interactive games, music, and movement. Guided by our devoted day school faculty, they'll not only enjoy the process but will also solidify their Mandarin foundation.
  • Advanced Learning: As students progress, they'll be introduced to Chinese characters, delve into reading, and cultivate the skills to draft concise paragraphs. With varied prompts and strategies at their disposal, it's a comprehensive Mandarin journey they're embarking on.
  • Thematic Units: The curriculum encompasses themes such as family, weather, animals, numbers, food, and activities. Each unit promises a focus on enhancing language proficiency, intertwined with enriching cultural awareness.
