We offer a range of cultural enrichment classes for children, teenagers and adults. The culture & specialty classes are held on Sundays after the Chinese language classes (11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) and are held in English and Chinese. For children, we offer traditional Chinese dance, Western Chess and Lion dance and are starting a new Chinese games club (mah-jong, go, etc.). For high school-aged students, we offer a Chinese SAT prep course. For adults only, we offer tai-chi. We are also starting a Chinese astrology course (in Chinese language only).
In Chinese SAT class, students will prepare for the Chinese with Listening SAT Subject Test. This test is a great way to demonstrate knowledge of written and spoken Mandarin and can be useful for college admissions or placement (check each college’s policy regarding foreign language Subject Tests). We will practice Listening comprehension, Usage/Grammar and Reading comprehension and the course difficulty will be adjusted based on the students’ performance and improvement.
