About the School
Our Chinese studies program is special for all kinds of students at different age groups. Chinese is one of the oldest and most used languages nowadays in the United States. At our school we have different enrollment levels that start from preschool that are about four years old all the way to older adults. It is our duty as teachers to make sure that we have a well rounded program of the Chinese language itself as well as its cultures. However, throughout the time of being in our program there is a lot of emphasis not only on learning the Chinese language itself but also listening, speaking, writing and translation skills which are very important.
All of our students learn to appreciate the language, history, culture and traditions that take place in China. As highly trained and educated teachers we are recruited from the general community and come from numerous diverse professions, jobs, and dissimilar backgrounds. However, we all share an expressed longing and devotion to instruct the Chinese language. All of our highly educated teachers have at the minimum a degree from a college level that ranges from many different degrees such as Education, Accounting, Liberal Studies, Mathematics, Chinese, English and much more.
