When we go into a new nursery setting for the first time and deliver a Little Mandarin Classes. Nine out of ten times children do not know what China or Chinese is unless you start to associate it with food and restaurants, spring rolls, dumplings, prawn crackers... the list goes on!
When we teach Mandarin Chinese to children as young as two years old, they can pick up the pronunciation and tones perfectly. Their brains are like a sponge and any new strange sounds is no stranger than a new English word!
Many people underestimate the ability of toddlers and preschoolers, they are a lot smarter than you think! The only thing is they have a short attention spam and require continuous stimulation to get their senses buzzing and encourage learning.
At Little Mandarin Classes, we embrace this way of learning through movement and story-telling. Children need to pay attention in order to find out what happens next in the story! A story is captivating, combined with movement it is simply giving them confidence, concentration and social skills, all whilst learning Mandarin Chinese!
Trial us and let us know make a difference with your children!
