Why learn Mandarin Chinese?

Language is all about connection and community.

  • Particularly with Chinese, the language and culture are inextricably tied together. Teaching a child Mandarin Chinese enables them to connect to Chinese culture as well. What a beautiful gift, especially for families who have Mandarin-speaking grandparents or extended family.
  • Engage your local community well: just after Spanish, Chinese is the second most common non-English language in the United States. There are most certainly Mandarin speakers in your local community.

How does KOM teach Mandarin?

With a natural combination of English and Mandarin: Teachers use English to scaffold learning and give kids a sense of success and accomplishment even after the very first class. As the child’s language level increases, more Mandarin and less English is spoken in class.

KOM supports whole-family learning: Resources that correspond to each week’s classes are provided so that families can continue learning together outside of class time.
