Jiale Zhongwen Chinese for Families

Jiale Zhongwen Chinese for Families activity based interactive Mandarin classes for young children with little or no Chinese language background were started in 2008. The program expanded to include 8 different levels each with each own tailored program and methodology. Key components in all classes were 1) the extensive use of interactive and comprehensible spoken Chinese,  2) stories: listening to stories, reading stories and co-creating stories, and 3) an open ended approach to literacy development with a primary focus on reading comprehension. Hundreds of students passed through our classes with up to 60 concurrent students. Short term classes aimed at building fluency were also run on occasions for senior secondary students The project will conclude at the end of 2024.
