LESSONS

Under 5’s playgroup (9:30-10:25):– taught in Mandarin. 

Numerous modern scientific studies have demonstrated that the best time to develop young children’s potentials is at the age between 0-6. During this period, kids can acquire a new language faster and easier. Every kid can possibly form up two speech centers. However, if kids do not receive any stimulation of other language signal at their critical learning age, then the other speech nerve centre will never be activated. Interacting in Mandarin, our playgroup kids are led through different fun workshops such as Songs, rhymes, dances, sensorial activities, puppets…which are especially adapted to the language development of this age group.
