At Mandarin For Life students enjoy a unique and play-based approach to understanding and memorising Chinese characters. For many students, Chinese characters are the hardest part of learning Mandarin. After all, there are over 50,000 Chinese characters, or “HanZi”, and a dictionary will typically list 20,000 characters. An educated Chinese person will know around 8,000 characters. And to read a newspaper you must learn about 2,000 HanZi.

Certified toxic free playing materials

With the hands-on exercises such as HanZi dominoes, magnetic spelling bee, building blocks, magic writing mats and play dough in the Junior Mandarin and Young Learners Mandarin courses, students truly learn through play and play to learn.

Advocating a play based learning environment comes with responsibilities. To make sure the young learners at Mandarin For Life can safely play and learn with the fun exercises, all products underwent a voluntary product certification. Besides the compulsory product certification the children’s products conform to the requirements of the standards of:

  • Quality
  • Safety
  • Environment
  • Performance

The relevant learning materials have been tested to be toxic-paint and chemical free to assure safe learning and playing.
