Nĭ hăo everyone! We have some great news for you today!
Last year we decided to set up classes for the children who would like to learn Mandarin Chinese in their schools and nurseries and for the centres that want to offer their pupils something fresh and challenging.
We have been working with headteachers, managers and activity coordinators and we learned that it is our responsibility to raise awareness regarding the benefits of learning Mandarin and make it available for the families and institutions that are already looking into it.
Now, children who do not have Mandarin classes in their school or nursery get the chance to join us at the Greenwich West Community Centre starting this Saturday, on the 23rd of February! There will be three sessions for different age groups and we are more than excited to start! You can find more information on our website: www.littlemandarinclasses.co.uk
We chose Greenwich because we enjoy spending time there and we know local families do, too. Whether it is at the market, in one of the cosy cafes or just by the river, carers will be able to enjoy an hour or two in the area, while the little ones are in our care, having fun themselves . Besides, we have collaborated with the Greenwich Community Centre in the past and loved it! However, you do not need to live in Greenwich in order to join us! Come from wherever you are, there is plenty to see, and plenty to do!
Today we would also like to thank everybody in the community for supporting us and spreading the word: the local shops, cafes and pubs, the schools and Greenwich Centre themselves and Greenwich Mums for their kind advice!
…And we will see you very, very soon!
