Program Description: YAPA Kids Mandarin provides students with all the necessary basic information to be able to read, write, listen to, and speak Mandarin Chinese. We teach all levels- from beginner to advanced, so whether you know nothing and want to get started or you’re already fluent and want to improve, we can help make the task much easier. Learning Mandarin is a fun and interesting endeavor that, once completed, is extremely rewarding. The overall class experience will change depending on the students’ skill levels, and can range from starting right at the basics to reading articles and writing essays. The class will progress as students learn more and more, but don’t worry; we will be right alongside the students helping them learn in the way they feel most comfortable. We invite students of all grade levels between grades 1 and 8 to join us as we share our knowledge of the Mandarin culture and language!
