We love running our After School programs! Each week we bring the language and culture of China to over 100 students at more than a dozen of the best private and public schools in NYC.  


Our After School classes are typically for students in K-6, often broken down into K, 1-3, and 4-6; however, please be sure to contact the After School Director at your child's school as programs do vary.


Classes and curriculums remain flexible throughout the semester. Our youngest beginner students learn through games, songs, and activities, while our advanced learners learn through more rigorous elements that involve reading, writing, and making more formal conversation. The ultimate goal of the program is to establish a solid language foundation upon which to build in the future, and to instill in our students a lifelong interest in Mandarin and Chinese culture. 

Proudly offering programs at these schools...
