Young Learners Mandarin Programme

Young Learners Mandarin Programme

The Young Learners Mandarin Programme is divided into six levels and is specifically designed for children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. Mandarin For Life’s unique and innovative approach to teaching Mandarin Chinese makes this course the preferred choice for young learners who want to speak and understand Chinese, and to enjoy the process of learning the new language. Students will develop a vocabulary of over 1,000 words that they will be able to use both conversationally and in writing.  Additionally, they will become eligible to confidently sit for the YCT (Youth Chinese Test) which provides verification of their proficiency in Mandarin Chinese.
