Chinese Lessons For Kids
According to educational experts, the best time to start teaching a child a foreign language is when they’re young. Thanks to their ability to absorb more information than adult learners, a child can learn the Chinese language in less time and with less effort.
At ChineseSphere.com, we recommend that children aged four can benefit from online Chinese lessons ranging from about 15 to 25 minutes per session. Therefore, our traditional one-hour class will be broken down into two smaller sessions to accommodate our young students.
Young students will learn online to speak Chinese and write Chinese characters through pictures and stokes. The Pinyin system of learning will not be part of the curriculum until kids can manage PHONICS in their own native language.
K-12 Chinese Lessons
Motivating a young child to be interested in Chinese language and Chinese culture is our first priority. After all, the more motivated the child is to learn the new language, the more successful they’ll be! Learning Chinese Online is one of the most effective ways of learning Chinese.
The educational experts at ChineseSphere.com know that the best age to start learning a foreign language with efficiency is from early adolescence (8 to 13 years of age). To harness a young child’s ability to learn Chinese online, we utilize a systematical approach to satisfy K-12 students’ Chinese learning demands with 12 books and other supplemental material.
Our K- 8 Chinese lessons get students ready for high school Chinese as secondary language so that they can be ready for the AP Chinese Test and SAT II Chinese test in the 11th grade.
