A class designed for students who are still in the early beginnings of learning Mandarin! Similar structure to our regular Ya-Ya classes, but taught at a much gentler pace. While some children thrive in an immersion learning environment (regardless of whether they speak any Mandarin at home), some children prefer a slower and gentler pace, with some English used as communication for them to feel more comfortable. This is the perfect class to give your child the time and space needed to embark on this new journey of Mandarin learning! 

  • Mandarin background is not required.

  • This class meets once a week, 60-min each time.
