Beginner Level I Mandarin Chinese After-school Course for Grade 1-6 Students (Age 6-12)

Dear Parents/Families,

Goethe Elementary School and Chicago Mandarin Chinese Center are are pleased to announce the commencement of the Beginner Level I Mandarin Chinese Course for Grades 1-6 students (Age 6-12). This featured after-school course will be taught at Goethe Elementary School (Room 306) on Thursdays from 3:00pm to 4:00pm, via Zoom. The first lesson will start at 3:00pm, CT, January 26, 2023 and this course will be taught weekly until June 1, 2023. (There will be no classes scheduled during Spring Break). Goethe Elementary School will provide all the advanced technologies & equipment to facilitate all teaching activities. Besides using large-screen TV/Projector as teaching tools, your child can also use the Chromebook to partake in the classes as well as review the summary class video after each lesson.


The Beginner Level I Mandarin Chinese Young Children Program is a carefully designed learning course for Grade 1-6 students (Age 6-12) who are ready to learn Mandarin Chinese systematically. The purpose of this featured course is to help the Grade 1-6 young students establish comprehensive knowledge & skills in terms of Chinese pronunciation,  speaking, reading, listening comprehension and writing, as well as gain a good understanding about the Chinese culture such as Chinese history, custom, and etiquette, etc, behind the language. 



This program is composed of 18 live online lessons (each lesson runs for about 1 hour) and at the end of this learning semester,  Chicago Mandarin Chinese Center will provide 8 extra free e-learning courses to all the participating students as extracurricular learning materials for their summer-season exercises. So, there will be altogether 26 lessons included in this program. At the beginning of each new lesson, the previous lesson will be briefly reviewed to help young children better memorize what they have learned from the previous lesson.  This would also provide the young children an opportunity to make up a potentially missed lesson. All the classes will be taught with shared learning materials, which include but not limited to text materials, summary videos for each lesson, flashcards, worksheets, and extra e-learning videos for Chinese characters writing. 


The total fee for this program is $178 per child (This fee covers all the learning materials). 

Please fill out the form here to sign up your child (Not required for families which had signed up previously )

Thanks and we anticipate this program will bring your child/children a brand-new learning experience and essential knowledge and skills in Mandarin Chinese! We expect to start this program with least 15 students.
