Early Dev. Prog. 1


This class will focus on improving the students’ speaking and reading skills. Students will develop their listening and speaking skills through imitation, repetition and role play of different everyday life situations. The class introduces students to the four-tone phonetic system of Chinese pronunciation (Pin Yin) and teaches basic, everyday Mandarin Chinese spoken language. By using flash cards, the students will be able to recognize new Chinese characters. Extra reading materials will help students to use these new words and eventually memorize them. This class is fun and filled with Chinese songs, nursery rhymes, poems, games, stories and other fun activities. Chinese cultures will also be introduced to the students.
